Python: Get execution time

Python Basic: Exercise-57 with Solution

Write a Python program to get execution time (in seconds) for a Python method.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import time
def sum_of_n_numbers(n):
    start_time = time.time()
    s = 0
    for i in range(1,n+1):
        s = s + i
    end_time = time.time()
    return s,end_time-start_time

n = 5
print("\nTime to sum of 1 to ",n," and required time to calculate is :",sum_of_n_numbers(n))

Sample Output:

Time to sum of 1 to  5  and required time to calculate is : (15, 2.384185791015625e-06)

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)
