Numbers And Math in Python

 Every programming language has some kind of way of doing numbers and math. Do not worry, programmers lie frequently about being math geniuses when they really aren’t. If they were math geniuses, they would be doing math, not writing ads and social network games to steal people’s money. This exercise has lots of math symbols. Let’s name them right away so you know what they are called. As you type this one in, say the names. When saying them feels boring you can stop saying them. Here are the names: • + plus • - minus • / slash • * asterisk • % percent • < less-than • > greater-than • <= less-than-equal • >= greater-than-equal Notice how the operations are missing? After you type in the code for this exercise, go back and figure out what each of these does and complete the table. For example, + does addition. ``` 1 print "I will now count my chickens:" 2 3 print "Hens", 25 + 30 / 6 4 print "Roosters", 100 - 25 * 3 % 4 5 6 print "Now I will count the eggs:" 7 8 print 3 + 2 + 1 - 5 + 4 % 2 - 1 / 4 + 6 9 10 print "Is it true that 3 + 2 < 5 - 7?" 11 12 print 3 + 2 < 5 - 7 13 14 print "What is 3 + 2?", 3 + 2 15 print "What is 5 - 7?", 5 - 7 16 17 print "Oh, that's why it's False." 18 19 print "How about some more." 20 21 print "Is it greater?", 5 > -2 22 print "Is it greater or equal?", 5 >= -2 23 print "Is it less or equal?", 5 <= -2``` What You Should See ``` \$ python ex3.py I will now count my chickens: Hens 30 Roosters 97 Now I will count the eggs: 7 Is it true that 3 + 2 < 5 - 7? False What is 3 + 2? 5 What is 5 - 7? -2 Oh, that's why it's False. How about some more. Is it greater? True Is it greater or equal? True Is it less or equal? False \$```
