Python Math: Create a range for floating numbers

Python Math: Exercise-72 with Solution

Write a Python program to create a range for floating numbers.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

#https://gist.github.com/axelpale/3e780ebdde4d99cbb69ffe8b1eada92c
def frange(x, y, jump=1.0):
    i = 0.0
    x = float(x)  # Prevent yielding integers.
    y = float(y)  # Comparison converts y to float every time otherwise.
    x0 = x
    epsilon = jump / 2.0
    yield x  # yield always first value
    while x + epsilon < y:
        i += 1.0
        x = x0 + i * jump
        yield x

print(list(frange(0.0, 1.0, 0.1)))

Sample Output:

[0.0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.30000000000000004, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6000000000000001, 0.7000000000000001, 0.8, 0.9, 1.0]

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+++
