object oriented python
class RaceCar: def __init__(self, laps, color = 'blue', fuel_remaining = 20, **kwargs): self.color = color self.laps = laps self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining for k, v in kwargs.items(): setattr(self, k, v) def run_lap(self, length): self.fuel_remaining = self.fuel_remaining - (length * 0.125) self.laps += 1 red_car = RaceCar(10)

laps does not have to be a keyword / argument when creating an instance of the RaceCar. you can simply set the laps under the init to 0.

def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining, **kwargs): self.laps = 0 #snip...
