Submitted by Anuj Singh, on June 25, 2019

In this article, we will learn how to swap the value of two integers (or can be float)?

The basic idea is:

• Storing the value of one variable (x) in a different variable (namely temporary - temp).
• Then changing the value of x by copying the value of y.
• Then changing the value of y by copying the value of temp.

Three simple steps, three simple variables and its all done.

So here is the code:

```x = float(input('ENTER THE VALUE OF X: '))
y = float(input('ENTER THE VALUE OF Y: '))

temp = x
x = y
y = temp

print('X :', x,' Y :', y)
```

Output:

```ENTER THE VALUE OF X: 10
ENTER THE VALUE OF Y: 20
X : 20.0  Y : 10.0
```
