Interact basics

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

``````

In [4]:

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

``````

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 [6]:

interact(print_sum, a=(-10,10,.1), b=(-8, 8, 2))

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 [10]:

def print_string(s, length=False):
if length==True:
print("%s has length %d" %(s, len(s)))
else:
print(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 [11]:

interact(print_string, s = "Hello World", length = False)
