# Python Examples

Pendulum Project Requirements

Here is an example where you give python 2 numbers, it adds them together, and prints the result

```import sys
print "Tell me a number"
number1 = float(raw_input())
print "Tell me another number"
number2 = float(raw_input())

number3 = number1 + number2
print number3
```

Here is an example of a 4 function calculate.  Give python 2 numbers, then pick the arithmetic  function you want to perform.

```import sys
print "Tell me a number"
number1 = float(raw_input())
print "Tell me another number"
number2 = float(raw_input())

print "What operation would you like? (add subtract multiply or divide)"
operation = raw_input()
if operation == "multiply":
if operation == "divide":
elif operation == "subtract":

Don’t forget, python does all angles in RADIANS. The following example

• finds the sine of that angle
• prints the sine  of that angle
```import sys math
print "Tell me an angle in degrees"
angle1 = float(raw_input())

```
