I think the maximum integer in python is available by calling `sys.maxint`

.

What is the maximum `float`

or `long`

in Python?

For `float`

have a look at `sys.float_info`

:

```
>>> import sys
>>> sys.float_info
sys.floatinfo(max=1.7976931348623157e+308, max_exp=1024, max_10_exp=308, min=2.2
250738585072014e-308, min_exp=-1021, min_10_exp=-307, dig=15, mant_dig=53, epsil
on=2.2204460492503131e-16, radix=2, rounds=1)
```

Specifically, `sys.float_info.max`

:

```
>>> sys.float_info.max
1.7976931348623157e+308
```

If that's not big enough, there's always positive infinity:

```
>>> infinity = float("inf")
>>> infinity
inf
>>> infinity / 10000
inf
```

The `long`

type has unlimited precision, so I think you're only limited by available memory.
