Python Basic: Exercise-59 with Solution

Write a Python program to convert height (in feet and inches) to centimeters.

Pictorial Presentation:

Convert height (in feet and inches) to centimeters

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

print("Input your height: ")
h_ft = int(input("Feet: "))
h_inch = int(input("Inches: "))

h_inch += h_ft * 12
h_cm = round(h_inch * 2.54, 1)

print("Your height is : %d cm." % h_cm)

Sample Output:

Input your height:                                                                                            
Feet: 5

Python: Tips of the Day

Merges two or more lists into a list of lists, combining elements from each of the input lists based on their positions

Example:

def tips_merge(*args, fill_value=None):
  max_length = max([len(lst) for lst in args])
  result = []
  for i in range(max_length):
    result.append([
      args[k][i] if i < len(args[k])
	  else fill_value for k in range(len(args))
    ])
  return result
print(tips_merge(['x', 'y'], [1, 2], [True, False])) 
print(tips_merge(['x'], [1, 2], [True, False])) 
print(tips_merge(['x'], [1, 2], [True, False], fill_value = '_')) 

Output:

[['x', 1, True], ['y', 2, False]]
[['x', 1, True], [None, 2, False]]
[['x', 1, True], ['_', 2, False]]
