It doesn’t express the opposite message. 2 Is it New 12 months? (y/n)y “else” situation output sort in “n”, or the other personality, and the hot 12 months message isn’t proven. in its place, the “Not but! ” message seems. 121 three style in “n” Is it New 12 months? (y/n)n chuffed New 12 months! style in “y” now not but! Time for Fireworks. a unique message seems to be Do this sort of issues The “elif“ command is brief for “else-if”. It signifies that if anything is “True”, do something, another way payment if whatever else is “True” and do whatever else whether it is. the next calculator application makes use of the “elif“ command. “if-elif-else” This application tests what's typed in. If it’s “add”, “sub”, “mul”, or “div”, the results of the sum is proven. Output for the that’s “True” try out this system. input numbers and kind in “sub”. the reply would be the first quantity minus the second one quantity. 2 1 be sure you upload quote marks and brackets Asks the person to enter a host a = 7 input numbers b = five a = int(input(‘a = ’)) add/sub/mul/div:sub b = int(input(‘b = ’)) resolution = 2 variety in “sub” to subtract five from 7 op = input(‘add/sub/mul/div:’) solution is calculated by means of subtracting variable “a” from variable “b” kind “add” so as to add the variables jointly if op == ‘add’: c = a + b elif op == ‘sub’: c = a - b elif op == ‘mul’: style “div” to divide the variables c = a * b “else” output The “else” runs if whatever except “add”, “sub”, “mul”, or “div” is typed in, and an mistakes message is displayed. three elif op == ‘div’: c = a / b else: indicates an errors message in “c” if whatever else is typed in c = ‘Error’ print(‘Answer = ’,c) indicates the reply or blunders message a = 7 b = five add/sub/mul/div:try solution = errors style whatever varied the following errors message screens 122 P L AY I N G W I T H P Y T H O N Loops in Python SEE additionally  48–49 Pens and turtles courses that comprise repeating traces of code will be time-consuming to kind in and hard to appreciate. A clearer means of writing them is through the use of a loop command. the best loops are ones that repeat a definite variety of instances, reminiscent of “for” loops. whereas loops 124–125 Escaping 126–127 loops   Repeating issues A “for” loop repeats the code with no need to kind it in back. it may be used to copy anything a definite variety of instances. for instance, so as to print the names of a category of 30 scholars. software the turtle A “for” loop is additionally used to shorten the code. This application permits the consumer to regulate a turtle that attracts a line because it strikes round the reveal. The person can draw shapes at the reveal, comparable to a triangle, through directing the turtle’s routine. 1 from turtle import * forward(100) right(120) forward(100) right(120) This makes the turtle flip a hundred and twenty levels to the ideal The turtle attracts a triangle this system tells the turtle tips to draw a triangle by way of giving it the size of the 3 aspects and the angles among them. The turtle will look in a separate window for those who run this system. 2 so much the entire instructions that keep an eye on the turtle forward(100) This command strikes the turtle ahead right(120) Use a “for” loop this system above supplies the turtle an analogous instructions, “forward(100)” and “right(120)”, thrice – as soon as for every facet of the triangle.
