# Python: Check whether a given employee code is exactly 8 digits or 12 digits

## Python Basic - 1: Exercise-87 with Solution

Write a Python program to check whether a given employee code is exactly 8 digits or 12 digits. Return True if the employee code is valid and False if it's not.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````# Define a function named is_valid_emp_code that takes an employee code (emp_code) as an argument.
def is_valid_emp_code(emp_code):
# Check if the length of the employee code is either 8 or 12 and if it consists only of digits.
return len(emp_code) in [8, 12] and emp_code.isdigit()

# Test the function with different employee codes and print the results.
print(is_valid_emp_code('12345678'))
print(is_valid_emp_code('1234567j'))
print(is_valid_emp_code('12345678j'))
print(is_valid_emp_code('123456789123'))
print(is_valid_emp_code('123456abcdef'))
``````

Sample Output:

```True
False
False
True
False
```

Explanation:

Here is a breakdown of the above Python code:

• Function definition:
• The code defines a function named is_valid_emp_code that takes an employee code (emp_code) as an argument.
• Return Statement:
• The function returns 'True' if the length of the employee code is either 8 or 12 and if the code consists only of digits. Otherwise, it returns 'False'.
• Test cases:
• The function is tested with different employee codes using print(is_valid_emp_code(...)).
