Fundamentals of Programming I

Developing and Testing Programs

Write a program that converts pounds to kilograms.

### Determine the Inputs and Outputs

• The input will be the number of pounds, as an integer or floating-point number

• The output will be

• a prompt for the number of pounds

• A label, and the number of kilograms as a floating-point number

### Example Session with the Program

Enter the number of pounds: 330

The number of kilograms is 150.0

### Gather Information About the Problem

There are 2.2 pounds in a kilogram

### Design the Algorithm in Pseudocode

Prompt the user for the number of pounds

Input pounds

Set kilograms to pounds / 2.2

Output the number of kilograms

### Code as the convert Script

"""

File: convert.py

This program converts pounds to kilograms.

Input: the number of pounds, as an integer or float.

Output: the number of kilograms, as a float, suitably

labeled.

"""

convert.py

### Code as the convert Script

pounds = float(input('Enter the number of pounds: '))

kilograms = pounds / 2.2

print('The number of kilograms is', kilograms)

convert.py

The Python shell

Test the program in IDLE first!

### Test with Several Inputs

pounds = float(input('Enter the number of pounds: '))

kilograms = pounds / 2.2

print('The number of kilograms is', kilograms)

convert.py

The Python shell

### Then Test in a Terminal Window

pounds = float(input('Enter the number of pounds: '))

kilograms = pounds / 2.2

print('The number of kilograms is', kilograms)

convert.py

The terminal
