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: Tips of the Day

Performs right-to-left function composition:

Example:

from functools import reduce

def tips_compose(*fns):
  return reduce(lambda f, g: lambda *args: f(g(*args)), fns)
add6 = lambda x: x + 6
multiply = lambda x, y: x * y
multiply_and_add_6 = tips_compose(add6, multiply)

print(multiply_and_add_6(10, 3))

Output:
