The Big If


#1

Make sure that the_flying_circus() returns True

def the_flying_circus(a):
if a > 1 or a * 2 == 3: # Start coding here!
# Don't forget to indent
# the code inside this block!
elif not 1 + 2 == 3:
# Keep going here.
# You'll want to add the else statement, too!
else a + 3 == 4

the_flying_circus(2)

I got this error

File "python", line 6
elif not 1 + 2 == 3:
^
IndentationError: expected an indented block

the FUNCTION talk

def myFunc( param1, param2):
    # Begin of =myFunc= FUNCTION-BODY
    # this =myFunc= function- has 2 PARAMETERS param1 and param2
    # param1 and param2 PARAMETERS are used 
    # as -local- VARIABLES throughout the =myFunc= FUNCTION-BODY
    print( param1 + " and " + param2 )
    #End of =myFunc= FUNCTION-BODY

If you want to call/execute the _myFunc function_ you will have to add a pair of parentheses to _myFunc_ like **myFunc()** As the _myFunc **function**_ was defined as having 2 **parameters** you have to _provide_ 2 **arguments** in our case 2 _string VALUES_ "Alena" and "Lauren" like **myFunc("Alena","Lauren")** _some quotes from the outer-world_: **argument is the value/variable/reference being passed in, parameter is the receiving variable used within the function/block** OR **"parameters" are called "formal parameters", while "arguments" are called "actual parameters".** +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ## function with 1 parameter using return-statement

def myFunction( param1 ):
    # //Begin of =myFunction= FUNCTION-BODY
    # //=myFunction= function has 1 PARAMETER param1
    # //this param1 PARAMETER is used as a -local- VARIABLE
    # //throughout the =myFunction= FUNCTION-BODY
    return param1;
    # //End of FUNCTION-BODY

You have defined a myFunction function
which takes 1 parameter param1
this param1 parameter is used
as a variable throughout the =myFunction= FUNCTION-BODY.

If you want to call/execute this myFunction function
and this myFunction function was defined
as having 1 parameter param1
you will have to provide 1 argument
in our case a "number VALUE" 4
myFunction( 4 )

some quotes from the outer-world:

**argument is the value/variable/reference being passed in,
parameter is the receiving variable used within the function/block**

OR

**"parameters" are called "formal parameters",
while "arguments" are called "actual parameters".**
