In this program, you’ll learn to convert kilometers to miles and display it.
To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of following Python programming topics:
- WHAT IS PYTHON? THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE CODE WITH PYTHON
- HOW DO I GET AND INSTALL PYTHON?
- PYTHON PRIMITIVES – VARIABLES, BUILT-IN DATA TYPES, COMMENTS, SYNTAX, AND SEMANTICS
- CODING APPROACHES IN PYTHON
- STYLE GUIDE FOR PROGRAMMING PYTHON CODE
- ERRORS AND EXCEPTIONS IN PYTHON
kilometers = 5.5 # To take kilometers from the user, uncomment the code below kilometers = input("Enter value in kilometers") # conversion factor conv_fac = 0.621371 # calculate miles miles = kilometers * conv_fac print('%0.3f kilometers is equal to %0.3f miles' %(kilometers,miles))
5.500 kilometres is equal to 3.418 miles
Note: To test the program, change the value of kilometers.
Your turn: Modify the above program to convert miles to kilometers using the following formula and run it.
kilometers = miles / conv_fac
