Python:Accumulate over a File with Multiple Variables
In these examples we accumulate more than one value. We still only need one loop - we just do more work in each.
Calculate the average population size for the countries of the world.
Print the total population divided by the number of countries.
Recall that there are three steps:
- Declare and initialise your accumulators before the loop
totPop = 0 count = 0
- Increment the accumulator inside the loop.
totPop += pop count+=1
- Use the result - in this case print it, after the loop.
Is 3 million the median?
