Python: Get the difference between a given number and 17, if the number is greater than 17 return double the absolute difference

Python Basic: Exercise-16 with Solution

Write a Python program to get the difference between a given number and 17, if the number is greater than 17 return double the absolute difference.

Python if-else syntax:

if condition :
indentedStatementBlockForTrueCondition
else:
indentedStatementBlockForFalseCondition

These statement blocks can have any number of statements, and can include about any kind of statement.

Pictorial Presentation:

Get the difference between a given number and 17, if the number is greater than 17 return double the absolute difference

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

def difference(n):
    if n <= 17:
        return 17 - n
    else:
        return (n - 17) * 2 

print(difference(22))
print(difference(14))

Sample Output:

10
