Python problem

Mon Jun 01, 2009 4:24 am

I'm having a bit of trouble with python at the moment, I need to create an if statement but i'm not sure on how to go about it, example, if something equals 30, than the price is $90, but after that 30 minutes, every 15 minutes after is another $50 on top of that $90?

How would i go about doing that?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure of the Python syntax, but in the loop I'd check the system clock to see if the proper amount of time is passed, and set the other variables appropriately.

Hmm, I mean as in you put 30 into a variable, it will equal $90 in the total price variable, but if that goes up to 45, it will be +$50 on top of the original $90 and so on so forth.

Something like this?

time=1
while time > 0:
        time = int(raw_input("Please enter a time: "))
        total=90.0
        if time > 30:
                for x in xrange(30,time,15):
                        total+=50
        print total


That for loop is a bit lame... should be something more like total+=((time-30)/15)*50 but that would only take into account whole 15 minute blocks.
