Theres Something Wrong With Quiz1's Question I Think


#1

Hi there. First, i want to thank you for creating a cool developer training environment here.

I was taking the Python Section 1 Quiz and there was a question like this;

what is the value of this variable: division = 102 / 9

and the right answer was 12.

but i think this is wrong. since 102/9 would give out a float, then the answer was supposed to be a 12.0

I might be wrong, just trying to help.

Sincerely.

well, a simply way to find out:

print 102 / 9

go run that in a lesson, you will see the output is 12. In python2 (which codecademy uses) dividing two integers result in a integer, if needs be the number is rounded down to the nearest integer.

hmm, so this is because im using Py3 then… Didnt know this, thank you.


#4

yes, in python3 division behavior was changed.

For what the exercises teaches (python2) the quizz answer is correct
