# Number

Numbers are a way to represent any ordinal limited by your computer's memory.

Cheddar's numbers support decimals, separators, bases, and implicit promotion.

## Basic Numbers

The most basic form of a number in Cheddar are integers and decimals. Cheddar wraps both of these in a "Number" type. You can write numbers as you would in most languages:

1
123
123.456
.123
0.1
1.0


## Separators

Often in programs you deal with large numbers. Numbers are often written with commas to distinguish the sections of the number. Cheddar provides a simple syntax for number separators, _.

 123_456 // Same as 123456
1_2_3_4 // Same as 1234
1__2345 // same as 12345


As you can see, Cheddar does not enforce where you place your number separators.

## Bases

You can type binary, octal, and hexadecimal literals in Cheddar:

 0b1010   // *b*inary

 2b1 // equal to 0b100
