Section 5.3 step 11 and step 16


#21

Thank you that is what I needed more detailed instructions on what I was looking at and trying to code.


#22

look at the post by LaurenNicole and read what she wrote about 14 hours ago and read completely… two days later this is what made every thing click…


#23

i changed it to user_input and it works on the previous page but i get an error when i put it as an answer. so i still not sure what i am missing. i may have to take a look at this again.

The directions say to print the diameter. The diameter will be an integer. The function calculate_diameter(circumference) will return the diameter as an integer using the circumference of a circle. The way to make the function give a return is to call it into being. The way to call a function is to say function_name(parameter).

In this example the parameter is the circumference. The circumference, or parameter, has been assigned to a variable.

Another way to read the line…
user_input = int(input(“What is the circumference of the circle?”))

…is to say it aloud in human words:
The variable user_input is equal to the circumference of a circle.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the explanation and the help but it is still not clicking for me. I will try and see if i can figure it out tomorrow


#26

No matter what I try the answer ends up being wrong, and I really do not know what else to do. I have solved all of the other problems. Will I not be able to attend the class if I do not solve this problem. I have been working on this for 3 days


#27

Looking at your code posted above. It looks right except the print line. Is this what you are having trouble with?


#29

Can you show us the rest of your code?


#30

yes and i had changed my print line to print(calculate_diameter(user_input)) and it worked in replit but when i put it as an anwer it says it is wrong


#31

calculate_diameter(circumference):
pi=3.14
diameter=circumference / pi
return diameter

user_input =int(input("What is the circumference of the cirlce? "))

print(calculate_diameter(user_input))


#32

How are you typing it in your answer block?


#33

print(calculate_diameter(user_input)


#34

Are you typing that whole thing in the answer? Its fill in the blank? They already have:

print( )

You only need to add what is missing?


#35

im sorry i am not retyping print. thank you for assiting me and it still doesnt work.


#36

it finally worked. thanks to everyone for assisting me with this


#37

the 2 major things people are getting stuck on

the input can have decimals so you want to assign the correct type to it

the print statement needs to involve (user_input) in it

took me awhile myself so dont feel bad


#39

NEVERMIND, I left the last parenthesis off on problem. When I added it, I got GOOD JOB.
