hey guys i need mad help with this! im soo lost and stressed out over this and not understanding how to do this. Can anyone help me with this ???

I m new to python and some of this stuff is so confusing to understand.
i have 4 problems i need help with
here are the problems.

1.Write a program that reads from the user n positive numbers, where n is an integer-value specified by the user as input, and outputs the largest number among them.
2.write a program that reads a string lower_string whose characters are all lower-case characters, and computes the string upper_string, which is the string lower_case with every character in it replaced by its corresponding upper-case character. you can assume that the characters in lower_case are chosen from the English alphabet characters {a,....,z}.
3.suppose the each line in the file "grades" contains the first name and the last name of a student followed by his numerical grades on 3 tests. Write a program that outputs to the file "final_grades" the name (first and last) of each student and next to it his alphabetical grade. you can assume the standard grading scheme(A=90-100, etc....)
For this problem i have some of it done but im getting a error for the name of the variable, not sure what im doing wrong here but if anyone can fix it .. I would be really happy. I don't really know how to output the program.

here it is.

import stringlibrary
def main():
for line in file:

if (answer>=90):
if (answer>=80):
if (answer>=70):

4. Write a program that takes as input a file and counts the number of characters, words, and lines in the file.
I have half of this problem done but just get the other have done.

and last one.

Write a program that takes as input the binary representation of a positive integer n and outputs its decimal representation. For example, if the user inputs 1101 then the output should be 13.

If anyone can help me with these problems.. I would much appreciate it.
Thank you

Hey guys, it's a 100 point hw, if anyone can help me out.. It would really help me out.

Thank you


Here are some hints readily plugged from the Python manual:

# let the user enter numbers into a list
input_list = [19, 37, 23, 67, 45, 54]
max_element = max(input_list)
print max_element  # --> 67

# user enters the string with raw_input()
input_string = "hello everybody"
upper_string = input_string.upper()
print upper_string  # --> HELLO EVERYBODY

# assume this comes from a text file
text = """I have much
more money
than I can handle

word_list = text.split()
line_list = text.split('\n')

print "Number of char  =", len(text)
print "Number of words =", len(word_list)
print "Number of lines =", len(line_list) - 1

# the conversion from a binary string to integer number is simple
print int('1101', 2)  # --> 13
