Python 2B - Inputting Numbers
Inputting Whole Numbers in Python
To enter whole numbers then you must use the int command.
int stands for integer (a whole number) and is typed before input – don’t forget the double brackets at the end.
age = int(input("How old are you? "))
print("Have you really lived for" , age , "years?")
How old are you? 99
Have you really lived for 99 years?
Inputting Numbers Task 1 (Zoo)
Type an input line (with int) to ask the user how many times they’ve been to the zoo.
Print a reply that uses the zoo variable (their answer).
How many times have you been to the zoo? 3
You've been to the zoo 3 times? I love animals!
Inputting Decimal Numbers in Python
Using float instead of int allows a decimal number to be entered instead.
Again, don’t forget the double brackets at the end.
miles = float(input("How far have you walked today? "))
print("You really walked for" , miles , "miles? Wow!")
How far have you walked today? 5.6
You really walked for 5.6 miles? Wow!
Inputting Numbers Task 2 (Height)
Type an input line (with float) to ask the user their height in metres.
Print a reply that uses the height variable (their answer).
What is your height in metres? 1.82
You are 1.82 metres tall? Wow!
