CS101 - Unit 3 Homework

Question 1 - Search Engines and the Web

Fill in initial values of the elements of p to produce the behaviour shown below:

p = [?,?,?]

p[0] = p[0] + p[1]
p[1] = p[0] + p[2]
p[2] = p[0] + p[1]

print p

When your values of p are acceptable, the output should be:

[1, 2, 3]

Question 2 - Mutating Lists

Which of the following procedures leaves the value passed in as the input unchanged?

def proc1(p):
    p[0] = p[1] 

def proc2(p):   
    p = p + [1] 

def proc3(p):
    q = p

def proc4(p):
    q = []
    while p:
    while q:

Question 3 - Product Lists

# Define a procedure, product_list,
# takes as input a list of numbers,
# and returns a number that is
# the result of multiplying all
# those numbers together.

def product_list():

#print product_list([9])
#>>> 9

#print product_list([1,2,3,4])
#>>> 24

#print product_list([])
#>>> 1

Question 4 - Greatest

# Define a procedure, greatest,
# that takes as input a list
# of positive numbers, and
# returns the greatest number
# in that list. If the input
# list is empty, the output
# should be 0.

def greatest():

#>>> 23
#>>> 0

Question 5 - Lists of Lists

# Define a procedure, total_enrollment,
# that takes as an input a list of elements,
# where each element is a list containing
# three elements: a university name,
# the total number of students enrolled,
# and the annual tuition fees.

# The procedure should return two numbers,
# not a string, 
# giving the total number of students
# enrolled at all of the universities
# in the list, and the total tuition fees
# (which is the sum of the number
# of students enrolled times the
# tuition fees for each university).

udacious_univs = 'Udacity',90000,0

usa_univs = [ ['California Institute of Technology',2175,37704],
              ['Massachusetts Institute of Technology',10566,40732],
              ['Yale',11701,40500]  ]

def total_enrollment():

#print total_enrollment(udacious_univs)
#>>> (90000,0)

# The L is automatically added by Python to indicate a long
# number. If you are trying the question in an outside 
# interpreter you might not see it.

#print total_enrollment(usa_univs)
#>>> (77285,3058581079L)

Question 6 - Max Pages

# The web crawler we built at the end of Unit 2 has some serious
# flaws if we were going to use it in a real crawler. One
# problem is if we start with a good seed page, it might
# run for an extremely long time (even forever, since the
# number of URLS on the web is not actually finite). The final two
# questions of the homework ask you to explore two different ways
# to limit the pages that it can crawl.

# Modify the crawl_web procedure to take a second parameter,
# max_pages, that limits the number of pages to crawl.
# Your procedure should terminate the crawl after
# max_pages different pages have been crawled, or when
# there are no more pages to crawl.

# The following definition of get_page provides an interface
# to the website found at http://www.udacity.com/cs101x/index.html

# The function output order does not affect grading.
