So how many of you got caught with the ceiling_test? It took me a while to figure out why my answer was 1 less than it should be. :-)
my answer is not the totally correct one and I've not figured out why - but since I'm horrible at math, I'm not surprised.
Yeah. Maths is definitely not my strong point....
I'm curious what approach you used to finally resolve. There are two problems with the write-up of part 2. The first is that there is no "ceiling" function. The second is that the test cases supplied explicitly use integer division.
There is a math.ceil function if you import math ( http://docs.python.org/2/library/math.html) so you can use that. I had a hard time getting the order correct in the variable to get it to get the right answer when using my multiadd function.
Yes, as Susan says there is a math.ceil function. I simply divided by 19.0 so it returns a float. It took quite a while for me to spot that I was exactly 1 out. :-)
