Python Math: Get the local and default precision

Python Math: Exercise-42 with Solution

Write a Python program to get the local and default precision.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import decimal
with decimal.localcontext() as context:
    context.prec = 2
    print('Local precision:', context.prec)
    print('22/7 =', (decimal.Decimal('22') / 7))

print()
print('Default precision:', decimal.getcontext().prec)
print('22 /7 =', (decimal.Decimal('22') / 7))

Sample Output:

Local precision: 2                                                                                            
22/7 = 3.1                                                                                                    
                                                                                                              
Default precision: 28                                                                                         
22 /7 = 3.142857142857142857142857143

Python: Tips of the Day

Getting rid of unwanted characters:

You can get rid of whitespaces or any specific character using strip methods in Python. You can use either plain strip for both sides, lstrip for the left side and rstrip for the right side only.

str="+++Welcome python+++"
str.strip()

print(str)

Output:

+++Welcome python+++
