How big can Maths numbers be?

Recommended Posts

Hi, just putting together some math channel stuff where the numbers might get quite big. 

I am guessing that the largest number you can go to would be a signed 32 bit integer? 2,147,483,647 maximum?

Or are they a 16 bit signed int? Or a float? something else.

Also, what happens when you overflow this number? Will it stay at the max value, or bounce back to zero or a negative value?
