Hello, in EX5 we are giving hte height in inches, is there a way to get it expressed in Feet + inches (not decimal)?

I tried a couple of different ways but seem to be stuck on this output:

Appreciate any help.

What are you trying to do with `set`

?

Try this in the REPL:

```
>>> inches = 0.75
>>> inches * 100
75.0
>>> int(inches * 100)
75
```

Yes, I’m curious with @florian about what’s the use of `set()`

here. Normally that’s for doing a mathematical set() object, so I think you may be thinking it’s…setting a variable?

Also, you can paste your code like this:

```
[code]
# your code
[/code]
```

Way easier.

@ Florian & Zedshaw

Okay, for the set I was thinking (noob w/Python) it would take the decimal and if matched would return the “set” number, so that I could have it list it as a whole number in inches.

So instead of 5.75 show as 5 Ft 9 in. etc.

@ Florian

For this,

inches = 0.75

inches * 100

75.0int(inches * 100)

75

DATA: 69 inches or 5.75 Feet = 5 Ft 9 Inches

Not sure that is going to give me the 0.75 (9 inches) as a proper output as (9) inches, I am trying to get the output to show 5 ft 9 in instead of 5.75 Feet.

Thanks! — B.

You mean like?

```
if newinches == 0.75:
print “9”
```

I think you’ll come onto conditionals soon enough which might help, but really the way to manage that conversion would be via a dedicated function call to return the answer in the format you wanted. Otherwise you need to have a massive list or dictionary of potential values.

Great exploration of the language though given the early exercise.

Welcome to the US measurements! Alright, so you get a decimal number for a fraction of a foot like 0.75. You want to translate that to inches, and there are 12 inches in a foot:

```
12 * 0.75
```

That should do it.

What a fun system! Over here it’s all multiples of ten.

Thank you, will play around with that. Yes, I was creating a dictionary/list for all 11 inches thinking to go that way but the output I kept getting was weird. Cheers. — B.

Yes, just the US and 4 other countries in the whole world…

US should go to the Metric system!

Thank you, I will see how that works out and let you know.

Okay, after a bit of trial and error I came up with this:

```
name = 'Benjamin' # First set all variables
age = 66 # true and retired
height = 69 # inches
weight = 165 # lbs - although it varies btw 160-165
eyes = 'blue-green'
teeth = 'white'
hair = 'gray'
total = age + height + weight
kg = round (weight * 0.453592, 1) # (,1) rounds it to ONE digits
M = round (height * 0.0254, 2) # (,2) rounds to TWO digits - Metric
# get whole number for feet, omit fraction - use trunc
import math # calling a math function for next line
newheight = math.trunc(height/12) # truncates to whole number - ingnores all fractions
newinches = (height/12 - newheight) # gets the remaining inches in decimals
dinch = round (newinches * 12) # take the decimal output, multiply by 12 to get whole inches
cinch = math.trunc(dinch) # now make Cinch a whole number, no decimal
# I still wonder if above 5 lines can be done in less lines by combining statements?
print("") # line spacer
print(f"Let's talk about {name}.")
print(f"He's {height} inches tall, or {newheight} Ft {cinch} in.")
print(f"He weighs {weight} pounds.")
print("Actually that's not too heavy.")
print(f"He's got {eyes} eyes and {hair} hair.")
print(f"His teeth are usually {teeth} depending on the amount of coffee consumed...")
print("") # line spacer
# This next line is a bit tricky, try to get it exactly right
print(f"If I add the age {age}, height {height}, and weight {weight} it totals {total}.")
print("") # line spacer
print(f"The weight converts to {kg} kilograms")
print(f"The hight converts to {M} meters")
print("") # line spacer
```

I tried it with several different heights and seems to do the job well now, so ex5 done for now. Here is the output:

Success! Good job creating a nice puzzle to solve.
