The Problem1:15 with Kenneth Love
Take a user's name and birth year. Safely make that year an integer, then calculate when they'll turn 25, 50, 75, and 100. Tell 'em!
[MUSIC] 0:00 Hey there, let's try a bit of Python practice around taking input from users, 0:04 try and accept blocks, and conditions. 0:09 There's a workspace attached to this video where you can write your code, or 0:12 you can do it locally by downloading the workspace through the File menu. 0:15 All right, let's see what you need to do and 0:20 these instructions are deceptively simple. 0:22 This challenge has three major steps, but 0:25 of course there's probably some minor steps you'll need to discover on your own. 0:27 First, you need to get input from the user for their name and 0:30 what year they were born. 0:34 You wanna make sure that they give you a year that's an integer. 0:35 We don't have Star Trek's floating point dates just yet. 0:37 Then you'll need to figure out what year they'll turn 25, 50, 75, and 100. 0:40 It's gonna require some math. 0:46 And lastly, you need to print out when those years are. 0:48 So I'm kinda leaving this part up to you, 0:51 at least a little bit, I don't care how you format your message. 0:54 Go ahead and format them however you want. 0:57 It'd be good though if you use their name, since you asked for it, and 0:59 said something like, Kenneth, you'll be 50 in the year 2031. 1:02 And don't put out any ages or years that are already passed. 1:06 These should only be days that they have to look forward to. 1:09 All right, I'm gonna let you get to it and I'll see you in the next video 1:12
