I need a Executable Script.

This answer was rated:

I need a Executable Script that does the following in Python:

Declare regular price for each product

Write “Welcome to Apple’s student discount program”
Prompt the user to choose one of the following products or exit
Write “1. iPhone”
Write “2. iPad”
Write “3. iPod”
Write “4. Mac”
Write “5. iTunes”
Write “6. Exit”
Get the chosen option
Prompt the user to enter quantity of the product
Get the quantity

If option 1 was chosen:
Apply 20% discount to the final price
price = quantity * (iPhone – (0.2 * iPhone))
Write “Your product(s) will only cost you $+price”
Return to the main menu

If option 2 was chosen:
Apply 10% discount
Add $25 shipping charges
price = quantity * (iPad – (0.1 * iPad) + 25)
Write “Your product(s) will only cost you $+price”
Return to the main menu

If option 3 was chosen:
Apply 15% discount
Add 6% Sales tax
price = quantity * (iPod – (0.15 * iPod) + (0.06 * iPod))
Write “Your product(s) will only cost you $+price”
Return to the main menu

If option 4 was chosen:
Apply 25% discount
Add $30 shipping charges
price = quantity * (Mac – (0.25 * Mac) + 30)
Write “Your product(s) will only cost you $+price”
Return to the main menu

If option 5 was chosen:
Write “This product is totally free!”
Return to the main menu

If option 6 was chosen:
Exit the program

Thank you for the question. I am working on this and will have it to you shortly. Please let me know if anything has changed since you submitted the question. Thanks again

Nothing has been changed so far.
I need the script written in Python.

If possible, please include some sample comments at the beginning of the code, so I can add my own comments later on.


Thanks a lot

Sounds good. I will add some comments in the code. Do you have a list of prices for each item? For example, Mac, iPhone, iPod, etc...? I am just making up the prices but want to see if your instructor gave you the prices or not. Thanks again

You can make up the prices. They're not really important.
It just has to work Smile

By the way, please include at least one function with the script. Thanks

Ok, I am all done. I used sys.exit() to satisfy your function requirement. The sys.exit() function terminates the script when the user chooses option 6. It works well for me. I've attached the script here. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks again!

I'm at work now, and I'm sending this message with my iPhone. I will check the file once I get home. Thanks.
Sure no problem. Thanks for the reply!
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I just got home, and just tested the file.

For some reason this file is not working, and when I open it in Python IDLE, I get an error message saying invalid syntax .

I've attached its picture with this reply.


Strange...I'll try this on the same version you have on Windows to see what the problem is. I'll get back to you by the end of the day. Thanks
