Exercise \(\PageIndex{1}\)

*Use a web browser to go to the Python website http://python.org*.* This page contains information about Python and links to Python-related pages, and it gives you the ability to search the Python documentation.*

*For example, if you enter *`print`

* in the search window, the first link that appears is the documentation of the *`print`

* statement. At this point, not all of it will make sense to you, but it is good to know where it is.*

Exercise \(\PageIndex{2}\)

*Start the Python interpreter and type *`help()`

* to start the online help utility. Or you can type help('print') to get information about the *

`print`

*statement.*

*If this example doesn’t work, you may need to install additional Python documentation or set an environment variable; the details depend on your operating system and version of Python.*

Exercise \(\PageIndex{3}\)

*Start the Python interpreter and use it as a calculator. Python’s syntax for math operations is almost the same as standard mathematical notation. For example, the symbols +, - and / denote addition, subtraction and division, as you would expect. The symbol for multiplication is *.*

*If you run a 10 kilometer race in 43 minutes 30 seconds, what is your average time per mile? What is your average speed in miles per hour? (Hint: there are 1.61 kilometers in a mile).*
