Python Coding challenge - Day 34 | What is the output of the following Python code?

 


1.0 / 3: This part of the code calculates the division of 1.0 by 3, which is equal to approximately 0.3333333333333333.


'{}' is a string containing a placeholder enclosed in curly braces {}. In this case, {0:.2f} is the placeholder. The 0 inside the curly braces is used to specify the index of the argument to be inserted into the placeholder, and .2f is a format specifier.


:.2f is the format specifier inside the placeholder. Here's what it means:


: separates the index (in this case, 0) from the format specifier.

.2 specifies that you want to display the floating-point number with exactly two decimal places.

f indicates that you want to format the number as a floating-point number.

.format(...): This is the .format() method of the string. It's used to replace the placeholder {0:.2f} with the value of 1.0 / 3 formatted according to the specified format.


When you run this code, the 1.0 / 3 is calculated, resulting in the floating-point number 0.3333333333333333. Then, the .format() method takes this value and formats it to display only two decimal places, resulting in "0.33". Finally, the print() function displays "0.33" to the console.


So, the output of this code is: 0.33 

It formats the result of the division operation to have exactly two decimal places and prints it.
