Data Science Career Path - Code Challenges (Article 1)

I’ve been struggling with the Python Code Challenge: Functions exercise.
Finally, broke some ground today.

  1. Write a function named tenth_power( ) that has one parameter named num.
    The function should return num raised to the 10th power.

def tenth_power(num):
(two spaces indentation) return num ** 10
print(tenth_power(1))
print(tenth_power(0))
print(tenth_power(2))

Output:
1
0
1024

  1. Write a function named square_root( ) that has one parameter named num.
    Use exponents (**) to return the square root of num.

def square_root(num):
(two spaces inedentation) return num ** (1/2)

print(square_root(16))
print(square_root(100))

Output:
4.0
10.0

Did you have a question, or were you just sharing your project’s code?

Hey.
Sharing my code I guess.
Wanting to keep my correct answers saved somewhere lol

  1. Average
    Write a function named average( ) that has two parameters named num1 and num2.
    The function should return the average of these two numbers.

def average(num1, num2):
(two spaces indentation) return ((num1 + num2) / 2)

print(average(1, 100))

The average of 1 and 100 is 50.5

print(average(1, -1))

The average of 1 and -1 is 0

Output
50.5
0.0

  1. Remainder
    Write a function named remainder( ) that has two parameters named num1 and num2.
    The function should return the remainder of twice num1 divided by half of num2.

def remainder(num1, num2):
(two spaces indentation) return (num1 * 2) % (num2 / 2)

print(remainder(15, 14))
print(remainder(9, 6))

Output
2.0
0.0
