#Create a function that will print out different statements #For example print normal things using print() #-using strings ("" or '') #-using ints, float, tuples print("Hello") #The print function above can be written with "" or '' a='Hello' print(a) b=(3, 4, 5) print (b) #"b" is a tuple. A tuple is is a collection of objects that are ordered and immutable. Tuples are sequences, just like lists. Lists can be changed, but tuples can not be changed within the parenthesis. Also, tuples use parenthesis () while lists use square brackets []. When you type "print(b)", it will print the tuple that is stored as b. e='cats' f='dogs' c=(2, e, 1, f) print(c) d=(2, "cats", 1, 'dogs') print(d) #Is there a way to print tuples that have words and numbers in them? And, can you print them without the quotation marks? g='dog' print(g) # The int() function just prints an integer. int(2) print("int(49) is:", int(123)) # This prints as a string print("int('49') is:", int('49')) int(2) #I still don't understand the point of the float function, though. It seems to just print the numberwhich int() does already.
Hello Hello (3, 4, 5) (2, 'cats', 1, 'dogs') (2, 'cats', 1, 'dogs') dog int(49) is: 123 int('49') is: 49

Like below 'a'.upper() a.lower() print('a'.upper()) print(a.upper()) #I know that once I write another line after "len(a)", the answer for "len(a)" will not be stored.

#Make a loop using for loop and a while loop #Print the results each loop a={1, 2, 3, 4} for i in a: print(i) #The "for" command goes through each of the inputs ("i") and runs them through whatever it is told to do in the print. You have to remember to put ":" after the for command line. '\n' #i did this beause I wanted to separate the numbers that were getting printed between these "for" loops. i do not currently know another way of doing this. for x in range (3, 6): print(x) #"print" always gets parenthesis after it. At the end of a "for" line, there are always ":" #This for loop above prints value within the range(3, 6) meaning that it includes 3, 4, 5 and not 6 because it goes up to 6.

#Tuple vs. List?? #Describe them? #A tuple is like a list but it cannot be changed or manipulated with. A tuple uses parenthesis () while a list uses {} or []. For example, you can switch the values of certain numbers in a list, like swtiching every [1] in a list with a [3]. However, you cannot do this with a tuple. tuple=(1, 2, 3) print(tuple) #You cannot do: "tuple[1]=3" because this means changing the 1 to a 3 and you cannot do that with tuples because they are immmutable. list=[1, 2, 3] print(list)
