CHAPTER 3 "expressions" are straightforward calculations which you can also do with any simple calculator. as showed in Exercise 2.2, a program that contains the statement 5 + 7 will not produce a result in the shell. Instead, you have to explicitly display everything that you want to see, even if it is on the last line of the program. so if you want to see results you need to use the function print print( "I", "own", "two", "apples", "and", "one", "banana" ) print( "I", "own", 2, "apples", "and", 1, "banana" ) Exercise: Display some texts of your liking using a Python program. But take note that if you want to display text strings, you have to enclose them in double quotes – or single quotes, those work too. Data types Strings text, consisting of zero or more characters. In Python, a string is enclosed by either double quotes, or single quotes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
