What does this output from ping command mean?

I am trying to ping a server through python and analyze the output of the command. This is the code:

import os

pingBool = False

while pingBool == False:
    ping = os.system("timeout 3 ping " + "")

This is the output:

PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=128 time=5.89 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=128 time=5.73 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=128 time=7.01 ms

The "31744" is the output of the print statement print(ping). I am wondering what that number means? Any help is appreciated.
