I’m having trouble writing a program that asks for your birthday and then the user can confirm if their inputted birthday is true or false (yes or no), however, I want to be able to accept an answer of "yes" if it was spelt with an accidental capital visa Veras for "no"
For example if I were to input "Yes" instead of "yes" as an answer to whether or not the correct birthday is being displayed in the console, the computer would still accept that as an answer as the word is still spelt correctly.
So in that case, I am trying to understand if I can assign multiple ways of spelling "yes" to one variable so I don’t have to type all the ways you can write the word "yes" and assign it too different variables.
Here is what I have tried for my code:
answer_YES = 'Yes' or "yes" answer_NO = 'No' Name = input("What's your name? ") Last_Name = input("What's your last name? ") print("\nHello,", Name, Last_Name + "!") num1 = float(input("Give me one number: ")) num2 = float(input("Give me a better number: ")) print("\nHere is your Summary:") print(int(num1), '+', int(num2), '=', int(num1 + num2)) BD = input("\nOK, now give me your birthday m/d/y: ") print("Is this your birthday?", '"' + BD + '"' "\n\nCorrect? (Yes) Incorrect? (No)\n") answer = input("Answer: ") #Using Boolean Expressions if answer == answer_YES: print("Awesome! Thank you", Name)
if it is all about the yes spelling (Yes or YEs or YES …)
you can have
anser_YES = 'yes'
then in the validation you do something like
if answer.lower() == answer_YES
otherway if you want make multilang input accept you can use list of accepted answers, so
answer_YES = 'yes'
answer_YES = ['yes', 'oui', 'Yeeeeeessss']
then to test the true response do
if answer in answer_YES:
i wish this was helpful for you
