Using Multiple if statements¶
You can use more than one
if statement in your code. Here’s an example of a calculation that uses two
if statements. Let’s compute the total cost of an item where the price is based on the weight of the item. If the item weighs less than 1 pound then the price is 1.45 a pound. If the item weighs 1 pound or more the price is 1.15 a pound.
Edit the code above and change the first line so that
weight has a different value. Run it again and see what changes. Try it in the codelens as well to see how the different values for weight changes the lines of code that are executed.
In this second version, we set a
price as a default, then change it only on the special condition. Does it work the same as the above example?
