In this post, we will list most of commoun Python methods that you should to know as a beginner

Python List Methods

  1. sort()
  2. Math Modules
  3. Random Modules
  4. Datetime

 sort()

Math Module

  • Remainder() or %

import math
print (26%5)
  • sqrt()

import math
numbers = 144
print (math.sqrt(numbers))

Random Module

  • random()

import random
print (random.randint(0, 9))

 

Python Operators

First_name = 'Reemaz'
second_name = 'alaa'
print (First_name*3)

First_name = 'Reemaz'
second_name = 'alaa'
print (First_name + second_name)

Note: To add a space between them, add a " "

First_name = 'Reemaz'
second_name = 'alaa'
print (First_name + ' ' + second_name)
