23 CHAPTER 2 ■ VARIABLES AND ASSIGNMENT STATEMENTS Simple Math Now let’s move on to some simple math for use in assignment statements. Python and all computer languages include the following standard set of math operators: • + Add • - Subtract • / Divide • * Multiply • ** Raise to the power of • % Modulo (also known as remainder) • ( ) Grouping (we’ll come back to this) Let’s try some very simple math. For demonstration purposes, I’ll just use variables named x and y. In the Shell, try the following: >>> >>> >>> 15 >>> 3 >>> 54 >>> 1 >>> x = 9 y = 6 print x + y print x - y print x * y print x / y Everything seems fine until we try the divide.

I introduced the math operators in Python and showed a few sample programs. You saw how to add comments to code, learned about whitespace, and were introduced to the types of errors you will see when writing code. ), Python also has a number of what are called built-in functions. This chapter discusses the following topics: • Built-in functions • Using a function/function call • Arguments • Getting a result back from a function • The type function • Getting input from the user using raw_input • Conversion functions: int, float, and str • Building our first real programs • Concatenation, or adding strings together • Another programming exercise • Using function calls inside assignment statements Overview of Built-in Functions I’ll give you an analogy to explain what a built-in function is.

My puppy's age is 2 years and 5 months. ” We were told that some math operators had precedence over other ones. For example, look at this assignment statement: x = 5 + 4 * 9 / 6 What operations are done in what order? The teacher explained that the acronym PEMDAS would help us to figure out the order. PEMDAS described the precedence order as 1. Parentheses 2. Exponents 3. Multiplication 4. Division 5. Addition 6. Subtraction However, I thought that it was a terrible idea to have some implied, seemingly arbitrary ordering of math operators.
