Python: Create a function that takes one argument multiplied with an unknown given number

Python Lambda: Exercise-2 with Solution

Write a Python program to create a function that takes one argument, and that argument will be multiplied with an unknown given number.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

def func_compute(n):
 return lambda x : x * n
result = func_compute(2)
print("Double the number of 15 =", result(15))
result = func_compute(3)
print("Triple the number of 15 =", result(15))
result = func_compute(4)
print("Quadruple the number of 15 =", result(15))
result = func_compute(5)
print("Quintuple the number 15 =", result(15))

Sample Output:

Double the number of 15 = 30
Triple the number of 15 = 45
Quadruple the number of 15 = 60
Quintuple the number 15 = 75

Python: Tips of the Day

Returns all the elements of a list except the last one

Example:

def tips_initial(lst):
  return lst[0:-1]

print(tips_initial([1, 2, 3, 4]))

Output:

[1, 2, 3]
