Answers to Class 16 Ungraded Quiz

  1. Write the single Python statement you would use to return the value of the expression interest * principle from within a function.
    return  interest * principle
  2. Write the single Python statement you would use to return True if the parameter number_1 were greater than the parameter number_2, but otherwise return False.
    return  number_1 > number_2
  3. Write the single Python statement you would use to return True if the parameter number_1 were equal to the parameter number_2, but otherwise return False.
    return  number_1 == number_2
  4. Write the Python statement you would use to return True if the parameter number were less than 0, but otherwise return False.
    return  number < 0
  5. Write the Python function get_positive which takes no parameter and returns a number greater than 0. This function should use the input function to ask the user for a number and convert it to an integer. It should then keep looping until it gets a number that is greater than 0. When it gets such a number, it should return that number.
    def get_positive():
    	number = int(input("Integer greater than 0: "))
    	while number <= 0:
    	     print(number, "is not greater than 0")
    	     number = int(input("Integer greater than 0: "))
    	return number
