# Interact Exercise 01

## Import

``````

In :

%matplotlib inline
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

``````

In :

from IPython.html.widgets import interact, interactive, fixed
from IPython.display import display

## Interact basics

Write a `print_sum` function that `prints` the sum of its arguments `a` and `b`.

``````

In :

def print_sum(a, b):
c = a + b
print (c)

``````

Use the `interact` function to interact with the `print_sum` function.

• `a` should be a floating point slider over the interval `[-10., 10.]` with step sizes of `0.1`
• `b` should be an integer slider the interval [-8, 8] with step sizes of `2`.
``````

In :

interact(print_sum, a = (-10.0,10.0,1.0), b = (-8.0,8.0,2.0));

``````
``````

0.0

``````
``````

In :

assert True # leave this for grading the print_sum exercise

``````

Write a function named `print_string` that prints a string and additionally prints the length of that string if a boolean parameter is `True`.

``````

In :

def print_string(s, length=False):
print (s)
if length == True:
print (len(s))

``````

Use the `interact` function to interact with the `print_string` function.

• `s` should be a textbox with the initial value `"Hello World!"`.
• `length` should be a checkbox with an initial value of `True`.
``````

In :

interact(print_string, s = 'Hello World!', length=True);

``````
``````

Hello World!
12

``````
``````

In :

assert True # leave this for grading the print_string exercise
