Python Multiplication Table of Number by Function Program

# An example Python program # to define and call a function table # to show multiplication table of a number # Author : www.EasyCodebook.com (c) # Note the first line in function is called # document string, it # define the function with formal parameter num def print_table(num): """ This function prints multiplication table of a given number""" for i in range(1,11): print(num,' x ', i, ' = ',num*i) # end of function table # input a number n = int(input("Please Enter a number to print its multiplication table:")) # call the function tanle by passing actual parameter 'n' print_table(n)

## Working of Python Multiplication Table Program

First of all we define a user defined function print_table(num). Here num is a formal parameter which is a number to print its table.

print_table(num) function uses a for loop in the range 1 to 10 to display table of a number. Note that the range() function used in for loop uses two argumenst, start =1 and stop=11. It is because the range() function will generate numbers from start to stop-1. Therefore the range() function provides 1 to 10 numbers sequence to for loop. As a result, the multiplication table of the required number is printed from 1 to 10.

After the end of the function, we use an input() function to get input from the user. The user will enter a number. The int() function will convert the entered string into number.

The last statement is a function call statement.

We call the function print_table() by passing it the number.

Now the function print_table() is executed and prints the table.

And this is the end of the Python Multiplication table program using the user defined function print_table(num).

## Output

Please Enter a number to print its multiplication table:7 7 x 1 = 7 7 x 2 = 14 7 x 3 = 21 7 x 4 = 28 7 x 5 = 35 7 x 6 = 42 7 x 7 = 49 7 x 8 = 56 7 x 9 = 63 7 x 10 = 70
