## NumPy: Basic Exercise-30 with Solution

Write a NumPy program to create a 4x4 matrix in which 0 and 1 are staggered, with zeros on the main diagonal.

Sample Solution :

Python Code :

``````import numpy as np
x = np.zeros((4, 4))
x[::2, 1::2] = 1
x[1::2, ::2] = 1
print(x)
``````

Sample Output:

```[[ 0.  1.  0.  1.]
[ 1.  0.  1.  0.]
[ 0.  1.  0.  1.]
[ 1.  0.  1.  0.]]
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Checks if the given number falls within the given range.

Example:

```def tips_range(n, start, end = 0):
return start <= n <= end if end >= start else end <= n <= start
print(tips_range(2, 4, 6))
print(tips_range(4, 8))
print(tips_range(1, 3, 5))
print(tips_range(1, 3))
```

Output:

```False
True
False
True
```
