I am making a calculator and i need it to support floating point values but i 
am using the function isnumeric to check if the user has entered an int value. 
I need the same for floating point types so i could implement an or in the if

use floating points. If you need the source code i am happy to give it to you. 
Thank you for your help

Your mention of *isnumeric* indicates to me that you are using Python3 (correct?) and are wishing to test if a *string* contains characters that represent an int or a float (correct?).

The easiest way to test such is to just try to convert it to an int or float, and catch failures as an indication that it is not valid. Something like:

  value = float(s)
except ValueError:
   ... handle invalid string ...
