  1. Write a function called str_mult that takes in a required string parameter and an optional integer parameter. The default value for the integer parameter should be 3. The function will return the string multiplied by the integer parameter.

1.1 Define a function called multiply. It should have one required parameter, a string. It should also have one optional parameter, an integer, named mult_int, with a default value of 10. The function should return the string multiplied by the integer. (i.e.: Given inputs “Hello”, mult_int=3, the function should return “HelloHelloHello”)

1.2 Create a function called mult that has two parameters, the first is required and should be an integer, the second is an optional parameter that can either be a number or a string but whose default is 6. The function should return the first parameter multiplied by the second.

  1. The following function, greeting, does not work. Please fix the code so that it runs without error. This only requires one change in the definition of the function.

2.1 Below is a function, sum, that does not work. Change the function definition so the code works. The function should still have a required parameter, intx, and an optional parameter, intz with a defualt value of 5.

2.2 Currently the function is supposed to take 1 required parameter, and 2 optional parameters, however the code doesn’t work. Fix the code so that it passes the test. This should only require changing one line of code.

  1. Write a function, test, that takes in three parameters: a required integer, an optional boolean whose default value is True, and an optional dictionary whose default value is {2:3, 4:5, 6:8}. If the boolean parameter is True, the function should test to see if the integer is a key in the dictionary. The value of that key should then be returned. If the boolean parameter is False, return the boolean value “False”. If the boolean parameter is False, the function should return “None”.

3.1 Define a function called nums that has three parameters. The first parameter, an integer, should be required. A second parameter named mult_int should be optional with a default value of 5. The final parameter, switch, should also be optional with a default value of False. The function should multiply the two integers together, and if switch is True, should change the sign of the product before returning it.

3.2 Write a function called checkingIfIn that takes three parameters. The first is a required parameter, which should be a string. The second is an optional parameter called direction with a default value of True. The third is an optional parameter called d that has a default value of {'apple': 2, 'pear': 1, 'fruit': 19, 'orange': 5, 'banana': 3, 'grapes': 2, 'watermelon': 7}. Write the function checkingIfIn so that when the second parameter is True, it checks to see if the first parameter is a key in the third parameter; if it is, return True, otherwise return False.

But if the second paramter is False, then the function should check to see if the first parameter is not a key of the third. If it’s not, the function should return True in this case, and if it is, it should return False.

  1. Write a function called together that takes three parameters, the first is a required parameter that is a number (integer or float), the second is a required parameter that is a string, and the third is an optional parameter whose default is ” ”. What is returned is the first parameter, concatenated with the second, using the third.
  1. We have provided the function checkingIfIn such that if the first input parameter is in the third, dictionary, input parameter, then the function returns that value, and otherwise, it returns False. Follow the instructions in the active code window for specific variable assignmemts.
