public class Program {
public static void Main() {
long a = 29876l;
float b = 95.10f;
Console.WriteLine(a);
Console.WriteLine(b);
}
}

On running the above example, you will get the following output. With that, you will also get a message “The l' suffix is easily confused with the digit 1' (use L' for clarity)”. Therefore,

## Output
