Lession - #286 Python Math



Python Math

Python comes with a collection of built-in math functions, as well as a substantial math module, that allows you to execute mathematical operations on numbers.

Built-in Math Functions

To determine the lowest or highest value in an iterable, use the min(>
and max(>
functions:

x = min(5, 10, 25>
y = max(5, 10, 25>
print(x>
print(y>



Output:

5
25

The Math Module

Math is a built-in module in Python that adds to the set of mathematical functions.
You must first import the math module in order to utilise it:

import math


After you've imported the math module, you may begin using its methods and constants.
For example, the math.sqrt(>
method returns the square root of a number:

import math

x = math.sqrt(81>
print(x>

Output:
9.0
