#2

for the numbers section, it doesn’t seem to matter if I put spaces between the numbers or in a function, but will it matter in the future?

#3

i think its just a mater of code organization and to easly read the code in the future

#4

When a calculation comes up in the code and the user wishes to round the number, I noticed that it rounds down even when the response is .5. Does the language round down at .5 and round up at .51 or not at all?

#5

Perhaps I’m overthinking this but shouldn’t the code snippet be print((25 * 68 + 13) / 28)?

#6

No, that would put addition before division.

(25 * 68) + (13 / 28)
