In this exercise, the
first_three_multiples() function has three
Yes, there are several ways in which you could condense the code. A straightforward way would be the use of a
for loop as shown below. Rember that the
range() function does not include the end number so the range produced by this code would be 1 … 3.
def first_three_multiples(num): for x in range(1, 4): print(num * x) return num*3
Expanding on this idea, you could also generalize the function to accept the multiple as a parameter so it would work for values other than 3.
def multiples(num, multiple): for x in range(1, multiple + 1): print(num * x) return num * multiple
