Assign the sum you compute to a variable q For example, if h is 19, you would assign 4 to q because there are perfect squares (starting with 1 ) that are less than h are: 1 , 4 , 9 , 16.

LANGUAGE:  PYTHON

CHALLENGE:

Assume there is a variable, h already associated with a positive integer value.
Write the code necessary to count the number of perfect squares whose value is less than h, starting with 1.
(A perfect square is an integer like 9 , 16 , 25 , 36 that is equal to the square of another integer (in this case 3*3 , 4*4 , 5*5 , 6*6 respectively).)

SOLUTION:


q = 0 
sqrt = int(h ** 0.5) 
if sqrt != h: 
    >>sqrt += 1 
for i in range(1, sqrt): 
    >>q += 1
