Learning Python-Basic course: Day 7, Exercises and coding challenges⚔️

Welcome 🖐️ Today's agenda is solving more interesting questions! ❤️ intricate patterns and mind-blowing sequences ✨


Let us now today solve some more questions 😀 on while loops and for loops. 😁 We will look at 2-3 sample questions followed by exercises and a coding challenge ⚔️.

Sample questions-

1) Write a program to print Fibonacci numbers.

a=0
b=1
print('0,1,',end="")
for i in range(0,10):
   a,b=b,b+a
   print(b,end=",")

Simultaneous assignment of values
Note the second last line. This is the Python syntax for simultaneous assignment. This is equivalent to using a temp variable like-

temp=a
a=b
b=b+temp

This python shortcut comes very very handy while swapping two numbers to

2) Write a program to display times table from 1-10

for i in range(1,11):
    for j in range(1,11):
        print(i,"*",j,"=",j*i)
    print()
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

OUTPUT-

1 * 1 = 1
1 * 2 = 2
1 * 3 = 3
1 * 4 = 4
1 * 5 = 5
1 * 6 = 6
1 * 7 = 7
1 * 8 = 8
1 * 9 = 9
1 * 10 = 10

2 * 1 = 2
2 * 2 = 4
2 * 3 = 6
2 * 4 = 8
2 * 5 = 10
2 * 6 = 12
2 * 7 = 14
2 * 8 = 16
2 * 9 = 18
2 * 10 = 20

What such a small amount of code can do in seconds took us years to learn...🤩

Exercises-

1)- Modify the factorial program we did in day 4 to error check for zero and negative numbers.(using if-else) Answer

2)Write a program to give the following output. Answer

1
121
12321
1234321

3) Write a program to display perfect numbers from a range entered by a user (include 0).

Coding challenges-⚔️
1) Write a program to display terms of this infinite pattern until 50.

1, 2,2,3,3, 4,4,4,5,5,5,6,6,6, 7,7,7,7,8,8,8,8,9,9,9,9,10,10,10,10,.....
