Write a program that takes the account’s present value, monthly interest rate, and the number of months that the money will be left in the account as three inputs from the user.

Write a program that takes the account’s present value, monthly interest rate, and the number of months that the money will be left in the account as three inputs from the user.

LANGUAGE:  PYTHON CHALLENGE: Suppose you have a certain amount of money in a savings account that earns compound monthly interest, and you want to calculate the amount that you will have after a specific number of months. The formula is as follows: f = p * (1 + i)^t • f is the future value […]

Write a Boolean function named is_prime which takes an integer as an argument and returns true if the argument is a prime number, or false otherwise. Use the function in a program that prompts the user to enter a number and then prints whether the number is prime.

Write a Boolean function named is_prime which takes an integer as an argument and returns true if the argument is a prime number, or false otherwise. Use the function in a program that prompts the user to enter a number and then prints whether the number is prime.

LANGUAGE:  PYTHON CHALLENGE: A prime number is a number that is only evenly divisble by itself and 1. For example, the number 5 is prime because it can only be evenlly divided by 1 and 5. The number 6, however, is not prime because it can be divided evenly by 2 and 3. Write a […]

Write an expression (not a statement!) whose value is the largest of population1, population2, population3, and population4 by calling max2.

Write an expression (not a statement!) whose value is the largest of population1, population2, population3, and population4 by calling max2.

LANGUAGE:  PYTHON CHALLENGE: assume that max2 is a function that expects two int parameters and returns the value of the larger one. Also assume that four variables , population1, population2, population3, and population4 have already been defined and associated with int values. Write an expression (not a statement!) whose value is the largest of population1, […]

Write an expression (not a statement!) whose value is the larger of population1 and population2 by calling max.

Write an expression (not a statement!) whose value is the larger of population1 and population2 by calling max.

LANGUAGE:  PYTHON CHALLENGE: max is a function that expects two int parameters and returns the value of the larger one. Two variables , population1 and population2, have already been defined and associated with int values. Write an expression (not a statement!) whose value is the larger of population1 and population2 by calling max.

[Functions >> functions and if statements] Write the definition of a function powerTo which receives two parameters, a double and an integer.

[Functions >> functions and if statements] Write the definition of a function powerTo which receives two parameters, a double and an integer.

LANGUAGE:  PYTHON CHALLENGE: [Functions >> functions and if statements] Write the definition of a function powerTo which receives two parameters, a double and an integer. If the second parameter is positive, the function returns the value of the first parameter raised to the power of the second. Otherwise, the function returns 0.

Assume the availability of a function is_prime. Assume a variable n has been associated with positive integer.

Assume the availability of a function is_prime.  Assume a variable n has been associated with positive integer.

LANGUAGE:  PYTHON CHALLENGE: Assume the availability of a function is_prime. Assume a variable n has been associated with positive integer. Write the statements needed to find out how many prime numbers (starting with 2 and going in increasing order with successively higher primes [2,3,5,7,11,13,…]) can be added before exceeding n. Associate this number with the […]
