Python Math: Calculate the discriminant value

Python Math: Exercise-9 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate the discriminant value.
Note: The discriminant is the name given to the expression that appears under the square root (radical) sign in the quadratic formula.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

def discriminant():
    x_value = float(input('The x value: '))
    y_value = float(input('The y value: '))
    z_value = float(input('The z value: '))
    discriminant = (y_value**2) - (4*x_value*z_value)
    if discriminant > 0:
        print('Two Solutions. Discriminant value is:', discriminant)
    elif discriminant == 0:
        print('One Solution. Discriminant value is:', discriminant)
    elif discriminant < 0:
        print('No Real Solutions. Discriminant value is:', discriminant)


discriminant()

Sample Output:

The x value: 4                                                                                                
The y value: 8                                                                                                
The z value: 2                                                                                                
Two Solutions. Discriminant value is: 32.0

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+++
