Really not sure what the hell that means?

Just know that when you are coding, you frequently have to think how you’re storing data like numbers. Do you want a 32-bit integer, or a 64-bit integer? A 32-bit integer can take up a bit less memory, but be able to only be used to store numbers from −2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647. A 64-bit integer is a bit heavy in its memory usage, but can store numbers from −9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807.
