Before you keep reading...
Runestone Academy can only continue if we get support from individuals like you. As a student you are well aware of the high cost of textbooks. Our mission is to provide great books to you for free, but we ask that you consider a $10 donation, more if you can or less if $10 is a burden.
Before you keep reading...
Making great stuff takes time and $$. If you appreciate the book you are reading now and want to keep quality materials free for other students please consider a donation to Runestone Academy. We ask that you consider a $10 donation, but if you can give more thats great, if $10 is too much for your budget we would be happy with whatever you can afford as a show of support.
Evaluate the following numerical expressions in your head, then use the active code window to check your results:
5 ** 2
9 * 5
15 / 12
12 / 15
15 // 12
12 // 15
5 % 2
9 % 5
15 % 12
12 % 15
6 % 6
0 % 7
5 ** 2 = 25
9 * 5 = 45
15 / 12 = 1.25
12 / 15 = 0.8
15 // 12 = 1
12 // 15 = 0
5 % 2 = 1
9 % 5 = 4
15 % 12 = 3
12 % 15 = 12
6 % 6 = 0
0 % 7 = 0
What is the order of the arithmetic operations in the following expression. Evaluate the expression by hand and then check your work.
Challenge: Many people keep time using a 24 hour clock (11 is 11am and 23 is 11pm, 0 is midnight). If it is currently 13 and you set your alarm to go off in 50 hours, it will be 15 (3pm). Write a Python program to solve the general version of the above problem. Ask the user for the time now (in hours), and then ask for the number of hours to wait for the alarm. Your program should output what the time will be on the clock when the alarm goes off.
It is possible to name the days 0 thru 6 where day 0 is Sunday and day 6 is Saturday. If you go on a wonderful holiday leaving on day number 3 (a Wednesday) and you return home after 10 nights you would return home on a Saturday (day 6). Write a general version of the program which asks for the starting day number, and the length of your stay, and it will tell you the number of day of the week you will return on.
Challenge: Take the sentence: All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Store each word in a separate variable, then print out the sentence on one line using
Add parentheses to the expression
6 * 1 - 2to change its value from 4 to -6.
Challenge: The formula for computing the final amount if one is earning compound interest is given on Wikipedia as
Write a Python program that assigns the principal amount of 10000 to variable
P, assign to
nthe value 12, and assign to
rthe interest rate of 8% (0.08). Then have the program prompt the user for the number of years,
t, that the money will be compounded for. Calculate and print the final amount after
Write a program that will compute the area of a circle. Prompt the user to enter the radius and save it to a variable called
radius. Print a nice message back to the user with the answer.
Challenge: Write a program that will compute the area of a rectangle. Prompt the user to enter the width and height of the rectangle and store the values in variables called
height. Print a nice message with the answer..
Write a program that will compute MPG for a car. Prompt the user to enter the number of miles driven and store it in a variable called miles and the number of gallons used stored in a variable gallons. Print a nice message with the answer.
Challenge: Write a program that will convert degrees celsius to degrees fahrenheit.
Ask the user for the temperature in Fahrenheit and store it in a variable call
deg_f. Calculate the equivalent temperature in degrees Celsius and store it in
deg_c. Output a message to the user giving the temperature in Celsius.
Piece together the code so that a user is asked for two numbers, and then the sum of those two numbers is printed out.
Write a program that will convert gallons to liters. This program will also need to get input from a user to see how many gallons should be converted and the result should be printed to the user.
Write a program that will convert tablespoons to teaspoons. This program will also need to get input from a user to see how many tablespoons should be converted and the result should be printed to the user.
