Python Math: Calculate the area of a parallelogram

Python Math: Exercise-4 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate the area of a parallelogram.
Note: A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel (and therefore opposite angles equal). A quadrilateral with equal sides is called a rhombus, and a parallelogram whose angles are all right angles is called a rectangle.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

base = float(input('Length of base: '))
height = float(input('Measurement of height: '))
area = base * height
print("Area is: ", area)

Sample Output:

Length of base: 5                                                                                             
Measurement of height: 6                                                                                      
Area is:  30.0

Python: Get the Key Whose Value Is Maximal in a Dictionary

>>> model_scores = {'model_a': 100, 'model_z': 198, 'model_t': 150}
>>> # workaround
>>> keys, values = list(model_scores.keys()), list(model_scores.values())
>>> keys[values.index(max(values))]
'model_z'
>>> # one-line
>>> max(model_scores, key=model_scores.get)
'model_z'
