Python Math: Add, subtract, multiply and divide two fractions

Python Math: Exercise-46 with Solution

Write a Python program to add, subtract, multiply and divide two fractions.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import fractions

f1 = fractions.Fraction(2, 3)
f2 = fractions.Fraction(3, 7)

print('{} + {} = {}'.format(f1, f2, f1 + f2))
print('{} - {} = {}'.format(f1, f2, f1 - f2))
print('{} * {} = {}'.format(f1, f2, f1 * f2))
print('{} / {} = {}'.format(f1, f2, f1 / f2))

Sample Output:

2/3 + 3/7 = 23/21                                                                                             
2/3 - 3/7 = 5/21                                                                                              
2/3 * 3/7 = 2/7                                                                                               
2/3 / 3/7 = 14/9

Python: Unpack a Tuple

>>> items = (0, 'b', 'one', 10,  11, 'zero')
>>> a, b, c, d, e, f = items
>>> print(f)
zero
>>> a, *b, c = items
>>> print(b)
['b', 'one', 10, 11]
>>> *_, a, b = items
>>> print(a)
11
