# Math

You can use Python to solve Math problems!

Symbol | Operation |

+ | addition |

- | subtraction |

* | multiplication |

/ | division |

// | integer division |

** | power or exponent |

% | remainder or modulus |

() | parenthesis |

Python follows the Order of Operations, just like you learned in Math class.

Order of Operations Precedence | Symbols |

Parentheses | () |

Exponent | ** |

Multiplication, Division (from left to right) | * / // |

Addition, Subtraction (from left to right) | + - |

When doing Math in Python, you must specify multiplication when you want multiplication. For example: 3(4 + 2) instead of 3 * (4 + 2) will result in an error.

Python has a number of builtin math methods.

import math

# square root

print(math.sqrt(2))

# pi

print(math.pi)

Write Python code that does the following:

- 1.Assign the variable bday to the month of your bday.
- 2.Multiply bday by 5.
- 3.Add 6 to bday.
- 4.Multiply bday by 4.
- 5.Add 9 to bday.
- 6.Multiply bday by 5.
- 7.Add the number number of the day of your bday.
- 8.Subtract 165 from bday.
- 9.Print the value of bday.

# Example birthday of 1/1

bday = 1

bday = bday * 5

bday = bday + 6

bday = bday * 4

bday = bday + 9

bday = bday * 5

bday = bday + 1

bday = bday - 165

print(bday)
