Python: Test whether a number is within 100 of 1000 or 2000
Python Basic: Exercise-17 with Solution
Write a Python program to test whether a number is within 100 of 1000 or 2000.
Python abs(x) function:
The function returns the absolute value of a number. The argument may be an integer or a floating point number. If the argument is a complex number, its magnitude is returned.
def near_thousand(n): return ((abs(1000 - n) <= 100) or (abs(2000 - n) <= 100)) print(near_thousand(1000)) print(near_thousand(900)) print(near_thousand(800)) print(near_thousand(2200))
True True False False
