Python: Matches a string that has an a followed by three 'b'

Python Regular Expression: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a Python program that matches a string that has an a followed by three 'b'.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import re
def text_match(text):
        patterns = 'ab{3}?'
        if re.search(patterns,  text):
                return 'Found a match!'
        else:
                return('Not matched!')

print(text_match("abbb"))
print(text_match("aabbbbbc"))

Sample Output:

Found a match!
