University of the People CS 1101 Programming Fundamentals October 7, 2019 Part 1 Encapsulate the following Python code from Section 7.5 in a function named my_sqrt that takes a as a parameter, chooses a starting value for x , and returns an estimate of the square root of a . while True: y = (x + a/x) / 2.0 if y == x: break x = y Part 2 Write a function named test_sqrt that prints a table like the following using a while loop, where "diff" is the absolute value of the difference between my_sqrt(a) and math.sqrt(a) . a = 1 | my_sqrt(a) = 1 | math.sqrt(a) = 1.0 | diff = 0.0 a = 2 | my_sqrt(a) = 1.41421356237 | math.sqrt(a) = 1.41421356237 | diff = 2.22044604925e-16 a = 3 | my_sqrt(a) = 1.73205080757 | math.sqrt(a) = 1.73205080757 | diff = 0.0 a = 4 | my_sqrt(a) = 2.0 | math.sqrt(a) = 2.0 | diff = 0.0 a = 5 | my_sqrt(a) = 2.2360679775 | math.sqrt(a) = 2.2360679775 | diff = 0.0 a = 6 | my_sqrt(a) = 2.44948974278 | math.sqrt(a) = 2.44948974278 | diff = 0.0 a = 7 | my_sqrt(a) = 2.64575131106 | math.sqrt(a) = 2.64575131106 | diff = 0.0 a = 8 | my_sqrt(a) = 2.82842712475 | math.sqrt(a) = 2.82842712475 | diff =

    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.
