Read a Number

Objective

To implement a program to read a number from user. 

 

Instructions

The program reads a number from the user and its equivalent low-level language instructions executed by the hardware. The low-level language instructions used are:  

  • Declare a variable n1 to hold the user input. 
  • Get the number from the user using input function. 
  • The default data type of the user input is string. So 'int()' is used to convert the string type data into integer type. 
  • Finally print the user input in the console / screen. 
in It reads the input from the user and stores it in a variable. 
out It prints the output value to the screen.  

 

Learning Outcomes 

  • Learn how to use the 'input()' function in Python to prompt the user for input and store the entered value in a variable. 
  • Understand the need for the 'int()' function and learn how it converts the user input (which is initially a string) into an integer data type. 
  • Explore how the 'print()' statement is used to display the entered number on the console, demonstrating the fundamental concept of output in Python.
