so I was doing a little math study and decided to recreate a simple assignment in python which is to find the factor pairs of a number. I did that quite easily but now I have a little issue which I have tried to figure out but to no avail. Here’s the code:
# Find the factor pairs of a given number def getFactorPairs(n=0): num = n factors =  pair = None for p in range(1, num + 1): for r in range(1, num + 1): if p * r == num: pair = (p, r) if (r, p) not in factors: factors.append(pair) else: continue return factors print(getFactorPairs(120)) # Works fine getFactorPairs(120) # This doesn't give any result. Why?
When I use the
print(getFactorPairs()) and pass in a number, the result is as expected but when I just call the function
getFactorPairs() and input a number, it doesn’t give me any result. I will be glad if someone can show me where I am doing something wrong. Thanks.
getFactorPairs(120) # This doesn't give any result. Why?
temp = getFactorPairs(120) print(temp)
When a function return value/values it is not automatically displayed by python.
