Python: Print first and last name in reverse order with a space between them

Python Basic: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a Python program which accepts the user's first and last name and print them in reverse order with a space between them.

Python has two functions designed for accepting data directly from the user:

  • Python 2.x. -> raw_input()
  • Python 3.x. -> input()

raw_input():

raw_input() asks the user for a string of data and simply returns the string, the string data ended with a newline). It can also take an argument, which is displayed as a prompt before the user enters the data.

print raw_input('Input your name: ') 

prints out

Input your name: 

To assign the user's name to a variable "x" you can use following command :

x = raw_input('Input your name: ') 

input():

In 3.x .raw_input() is renamed to input(). input() function reads a line from sys.stdin and returns it with the trailing newline stripped.

To assign the user's name to a variable "y" you can use following command :

y = input('Input your name: ') 

Pictorial Presentation:

Print first and last name in reverse order with a space between them

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

fname = input("Input your First Name : ")
lname = input("Input your Last Name : ")
print ("Hello  " + lname + " " + fname)

Sample Output:

Input your First Name : Dany                                       
Input your Last Name : Boon                                        
Hello  Boon Dany

Python: Tips of the Day

Unpack variables from iterable:

# One can unpack all iterables (tuples, list etc)
>>> a, b, c = 1, 2, 3
>>> a, b, c
(1, 2, 3)

>>> a, b, c = [1, 2, 3]
>>> a, b, c
(1, 2, 3)
