Python Programs: Which Python Fundamentals One Should Focus On?

Last updated on Apr 26,2024 62.5K Views

Technological advancements have lead to reduced effort. This makes Python programming language as one of the most sought out programming language due to its ease of access and readability.  This also means a surge in the number of people experimenting with Python codes. In this blog, we will go through few of the most sought after fundamental python programs. Here is the list of same:

Palindrome Program In Python

A palindrome is a number, string or a sequence which will be the same even after we reverse the order. For example: MADAM, if spelled backwards will be same as MADAM.
palindrome-python programs-edureka
Following is the python program to check whether the input string is a palindrome or not.

def pal(num):
     x1 = num[::-1]
     if x1 == x:
       print('not a palindrome')


Uncover the secrets of palindrome in Python and sharpen your coding skills with our step-by-step tutorial.

Factorial Program In Python

Factorial of a number is the product of all the positive numbers less than or equal to the number. The factorial of a number n is denoted by n!.

factorial-python programs-edureka

Following is the program to find the factorial of a number.

def fact(num):
    if num == 0:
       return num
       return num * fact(num - 1)

Fibonacci Series 

A series in which the next term is the sum of the preceding two terms is called a fibonacci series. Fibonacci series is asked frequently in interviews. Prepare for success in your Python interviews with our curated collection of essential Python interview questions.

fibbonacci series-edureka

Following is a program to print a fibonacci series.

a = int(input('enter the first element'))
b = int(input('enter the second element'))
n = int(input('enter the number of elements '))
print(a,b, end=" ")

while n-2:
       c = a + b
       a = b
       b = c
       print(c, end=" ")
       n = n-1

Armstrong Number Program In Python

It is a special number, If we sum the cube of each of the digits in an armstrong number it will be equal to the number itself.

armstrong number-edureka

Following is the program to check whether a number is an armstrong number or not.

num = int(input('enter the nuber'))
s = 0
temp = num
while temp > 0:
c = temp % 10
s += c**3
temp //= 10
if s == num:
print('armstrong number')
print('not an armstrong number')

Calculator Program In Python

When we think about a calculator, operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division comes into our mind. We will try to build a calculator using python. We will add a few more operations in the program for better understanding.


Following is the program to create a calculator

def add(a,b):
     return a+b

def sub(a,b):
     return a-b

def prod(a,b):
     return a * b

def div(a,b):
     return a / b

def si(p, r, t):
    return (p*r*t) / 100

def ci(p, r ,t):
    return p * pow((1 + r/100), t)

def sqr(num):
    return num**2

def sqrt(num)
    return num**0.5

#to add two numbers, similarly you can use other functions for other operations.

Patterns Program 

We can use for loop to print various patterns in python. We will print a pyramid and a half pyramid pattern using the asterisk in a program.

patterns-python programs-edureka

Following is the program for patterns.

num = 5
a = (2 * num) - 2
for i in range(0, num):
     for j in range(0, a ):
         print(end=" ")
     for j in range(0, i+1)
     print('*' , end=" ")
print(" ")

Leap Year Program 

A leap year has 366 days with an extra day in the month of February. It occurs every four years. We will make a program to check if a year is a leap year or not?

leap year-python programs-edureka

Following is the program to check if a year is a leap year

year = int(input('enter year'))
if year % 400 == 0:
  print('it is a leap year')
elif year % 4 == 0:
  print('it is a leap year')
elif year % 100 == 0:
  print('not a leap year')
  print('not a leap year')

Prime Number Program 

A prime number has only two factors, 1 and the number itself. We will make a program to check whether a number is a prime number or not.
Following is the program to check if the number is a prime number or not.
num = int(input('enter number'))
for i range(2, num):
    if  num% i == 0:
       print('not a prime number")
       print('prime number')

Program To Print Areas 

We will take the following shapes and try to calculate the area of all these shapes in python.

areas-python programs-edureka

Following is the program to calculate areas

import math
pi = math.pi
def circle(radius):
     return pi * radius**2

def cube(side):
     return side**3

def cylinder(radius, height):
     return 2*pi*radius + 2*pi*height

def sphere(radius):
     return 2*pi*(radius**2)

#You can use other functions to calculate the areas of other shapes.

Program To Reverse A List 
A list is a collection data type which is mutable and can contain duplicate elements as well. We will make a program to reverse a list.

list-reverse-python programs-edureka

Following is the program to reverse a list

a = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]
print(a[: : -1])
#this will print the list in reverse.
In this blog, we have covered quite few logical topics in python. It is evident enough to prove how python differs from other languages and provides a much more efficient and easy to read coding platform. Effortlessly navigate XML parsing in Python and streamline your data processing workflow – discover how in our detailed guide.
This brings us to the end of this blog on python programs. To master your skills in this language and kickstart your learning, enroll to python certification program and discover the endless possibilities and applications of python programming language.
