Python Math: Round a specified decimal by setting precision

Python Math: Exercise-40 with Solution

Write a Python program to round a specified decimal by setting precision (between 1 and 4).

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import decimal

d = decimal.Decimal('00.26598')
print("Original Number : ",d)
for i in range(1, 5):
    decimal.getcontext().prec = i
    print("Precision-",i, ':', d * 1)

Sample Output:

Original Number :  0.26598                                                                                    
Precision- 1 : 0.3                                                                                            
Precision- 2 : 0.27                                                                                           
Precision- 3 : 0.266                                                                                          
Precision- 4 : 0.2660

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'
