- A retailer is having a store-wide "buy 2, get 1 free" sale.
- For legal reasons, they can't charge their customers $0 for an article
- so a discount is applied to all products instead. - --
- Create a function that takes in a list of prices for a customer's shopping cart
- and returns the prices with the discount applied.
- Round all prices to the cent.
For example, if a customer gets three products a, b and c:
|Product A||Product B||Product C|
She gets the cheapest one for free, so she ends up paying $15.99 + $23.50 = $39.49, but what her receipt says is:
Product A: $15.99 − Special Discount = $12.57
Product B: $23.50 − Special Discount = $18.47
Product C: $10.75 − Special Discount = $8.45
>>calculate the original price of all the products initialise a variable called original_total original_total = sum of the shopping cart >>calculate the discount given in percentage >>>determine how many product should be free free_product_number = length of shopping cart // 3 >>>calculate the total price of the free product >>>>find the lowest (numbers_of_free_product) price in the shopping cart initialise a free_product list while length of free_product list is not equal to free_product_number: for product in shopping cart: lowest_product = min(shopping cart) add the lowest_product to free_product list delete the lowest_product initialise a variable called discount_given discount_given = sum of the free_product list >>>calculate the discount percentage discount percentage = 1-(discount_given / original_total) >>return the list of all product price with discounted applied initialise a discounted_list for each product in the shopping cart: new_price = product * discount percentage then round the new_price to 2 decimal place store the new_price to the discounted list return the new_list
def discount(shopping_cart: list): copy_of_shopping_cart = shopping_cart.copy() # >>calculate the original price of all the products original_total = sum(shopping_cart) free_product_number = len(shopping_cart) // 3 # >>>calculate the total price of the free product # find the lowest (numbers_of_free_product) product in the shopping cart free_product_list = list() # set up a loop for free_product_number times: while len(free_product_list) < free_product_number: free_product = min(copy_of_shopping_cart) free_product_list.append(free_product) # remove the lowest product in the shopping cart, so the next lowest product can be found copy_of_shopping_cart.remove(free_product) # calculate the total prise of the free item discount_given = sum(free_product_list) discount_percentage = 1 - (discount_given / original_total) # >>return the list of all product price with discounted applied discounted_list = list() # applied discount to each product in the original list , round to 2 decimal place and add to discounted_list for product in shopping_cart: discounted_product = product * discount_percentage discounted_list.append(round(discounted_product, 2)) return discounted_list
def discount(lst): free = len(lst) // 3 # sorted the list in accedning order, and calculate the sum of the non_free item start from the index after the free item. pct = sum(sorted(lst)[free:]) / sum(lst) return [round(x*pct, 2) for x in lst]
- I have learned a new way to solve the find lowest item in the list by using sorted()function and slicing method
- seem like my code are very long compare to other, need to practice more the shorten code.
