Its python 3, I feel like I've tried everything, i.e. round(), int(), {0:1.1f}, but none are working the way I expected. I'm a CSC noob though, so I'm looking for a little help

Ah ah! recurrent question. I once started a thread with same issue. The best solution I know is

``````def iround(x):
return int(x + (0.5 if x > 0 else -0.5))``````

just tried it, i keep getting:

You must also remove your {0:1.1f} formatting:

``````def iround(x):
return int(x + (0.5 if x > 0 else -0.5))

def windchill(V,T):
wc = 35.74 + .6215*T-35.75*(V**.16)+.4275*(V**.16)
we = iround(wc) # <---- used iround
return we

def main():
print("                         Temperature \n")
print("Speed \n")
print("---- -20 70 10 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 ")

for V in range(0,55,5):
print(V)
for T in range(-20,70,10):
wc = windchill(V,T)
print(V, wc, end="") # <---  removed formatting

main()``````

I tried that exactly, but now its rounding like this:

Temperature

What is your expected result ? Your function windchill() first computes a floating number named wc, then you convert it to a we and return. Suppose that wc is 34.8768678, what do you want to output ?

I would hopefully like to get it to 34. I just don't understand why python made the number jump to 10 times the number as seen in the last post. It won't just compute a 34- its always 34.876 or 340 for some reason

I don't even know if I need the we = round(wc) as seen in the first post, its just something I tried

If you want 34, you don't need iround(), which gives 35 (the nearest integer). The problem is the V in your print(). I added a "@" separator to show your error

``````from __future__ import print_function

def iround(x):
return int(x + (0.5 if x > 0 else -0.5))

def windchill(V,T):
wc = 35.74 + .6215*T-35.75*(V**.16)+.4275*(V**.16)
we = int(wc) # <---- this if you want 34, iround if you prefer 35
return we

def main():
print("                         Temperature \n")
print("Speed \n")
print("---- -20 70 10 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 ")

for V in range(0,55,5):
print(V)
for T in range(-20,70,10):
wc = windchill(V,T)
print(V, "@", wc, end=" ") # <-----See ?

main()``````

Also it would be more logical that windchill() returns a floating number and that you round the number only in the call to print(). For example you can print iround(wc).

python is adding a 0 to each of my numbers for some reason, it is rounding like I want I believe, but when I run it, all the numbers get a 0 added to them- I don't know why

It is not adding a 0: it's printing wc and the next V, which is 0 in the first line (and 5, 10, 15, .. in subsequent lines). Did you run the code I just posted to understand its output ?

I see the problem but I can't figure out how to fix it, I been at it forever

Well, here is my solution. It's not perfect: the next step is to print the numbers in fixed width fields using format(), but I won't help you on this. See http://www.daniweb.com/software-development/python/code/232375

``````def iround(x):
return int(x + (0.5 if x > 0 else -0.5))

def windchill(V,T):
wc = 35.74 + .6215*T-35.75*(V**.16)+.4275*(V**.16)
return wc # <------------- return a float here because it's a physical quantity

def main():
print("                         Temperature \n")
print("Speed \n")
print("---- -20 70 10 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 ")

for V in range(0,55,5):
print(V, end="")
for T in range(-20,70,10):
wc = windchill(V,T)
print(iround(wc), end=" ") # <-------------- V removed !
print()

main()``````

I did try that, but it also deletes the V count down the side

I did try that, but it also deletes the V count down the side

I see V in the first column.

its an ugly table, but I've spent well over 18 hours on this... its good enough for me.

I appreciate the help, its not easy to walk a noob through his homework
