In Python, all data including numbers and strings are actually objects. The functions for the objects are called methods in Python.

Work Step by Step

$Object:$ In Python, a number is an object, a string is an object, and every datum is an object. Objects of the same kind have the same type. You can use the id function and type function to get these pieces of information about an object $Method:$ You can perform operations on an object. The operations are defined using functions. The functions for the objects are called methods in Python. Methods can only be invoked from a specific object. For example, the string type has the methods such as lower() and upper(); use these for uppercase and lower case.
