a few questions.

1. whats the best way to round a result to 4 decimal places?

I tried round, but then read that it only works with exponents of 10.

I'm trying to do it on this piece of code.

time = (distance / 4900)

2. What direction would I go in if I'm getting 5 inputs from the user
and want to make a bar table out of them where a * represents a 100 of
the total number?

For example,

Store 1: * *

Store 2: *

Store 3: * * *

ect,

I already know I'm going to be expecting to use a for loop (0,4) since
there are 5 inputs, but how to get from say, 200 to the output of * *
I'm a little lost.

thx

>>round(123.45678, 4)
123.4568

Q2:

Something like this works:

stores=[]
for i in xrange(0,5):
x=raw_input("input number for store=%i ?" % i)
stores.append(int(x))

for i in xrange(0,5):
hundreds, remainder=divmod(stores[i], 100)
print "Store: %i %s" % (i+1, hundreds*"*")

Yes, or since you don't need 'remainder'...

for i in range(5):
hundreds = stores[i] // 100
print "Store: %i %s" % (i + 1, '*' * hundreds)
