What is Fruit?

A task to help define fruit based recipes, however first we must ask... What is Fruit?

Prerequisites:
1. Microsoft Excel installed. (Note: This can be completed without Excel by utilizing notepad and a CSV file instead)
2. Sign-up for an API key at: https://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/doc/index# (Click ‘Sign up now’ text)

Excel:
Create an excel file with 3 columns; Fruit, Recipe, Ingredients
In the fruit column, add 3 rows; Apple, Orange, Banana (Leave Recipe and Ingredients Blank)

The Problem:
Prompt the user to input the name of a fruit
Check to see if the inputted fruit name exists in column A of our Excel file
Fruit does not exist in excel file:
(Advanced) Search for the user’s input using this API, requesting a JSON formatted response, test to see if the word “fruit” exists within the response
(Intermediate) Confirm the user’s input by repeating the fruit back to them, "Are you sure you want me to check for fig Recipes?"
“Fruit” does not exist in response:
Display a message that says, “I don’t believe this is a fruit” and ask the user if
they’d like to try again or exit.
Try again: Return to the start and prompt the user for the name of a fruit
Exit: End process
“Fruit” does exist in response:
Add the fruit to the next available row in the excel file
Continue from “Fruit does exist”

Fruit does exist in Excel File
Navigate to Taste.com.au and search the fruit name
Look at the top 3 (Non-Featured) recipes and identify which has the most ingredients
Store the Recipe name in Column B next to the relevant fruit
Store the Ingredients in column C, separated by a new line with no excess white space
Prompt the user to ‘Start Again’ or ‘Exit’

Use your project to populate Apple, Orange, Banana, and one fruit of your choosing.
Submit your project folder and completed excel file in a .zip to the email Daniel.Farrugia@withyouwithme.com

Python Challenge #9

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time

- Thomas A. Edison

Welcome back to our series of coding challenges! Having completed our Python Fundamentals course you’re no doubt wanting to explore this newfound world and challenge your skills.

These challenges are here for you to practice on, with your submissions being automatically marked and ranked to give you immediate feedback on your code. The context and difficulty of these problems will vary week to week – some will be trivial, and some may take days of thought. Some problems may be typical “interview” questions, while others will be arbitrary scenarios to test your reasoning.

Data Challenge #4 - Air Crashes

This challenge will test your ability to clean data. Minimal preparation has been done to this data set, so as to give you a chance to deal with a more realistic set of formatting issues.

The following are data sets of total flights each year and a data set of air crashes.

Flight data

and

air crash data from 1908-2009

You will need to do a lot of cleaning with this data. 

Some hints:

The date is in american format, so you will need to separate out day month and year.

This will allow you to use year as a common variable between the two datasets.

You will need to add an index column, if you wish to count the number of air crashes.

To compare the total flights data with the crash data you will need to know how to unpivot columns in Power BI.

This video will tell you how.

(if you are using excel, do not worry about this part. Skip Q1, but answer all the others)

Make a line graph showing both the number of flights, and the number of crashes.

Q1 Does the trend in total number of flights explain the trend in the number of crashes?

Add two more columns to your crash data set that calculate the number of survivors and the survival rate.

Q2 Suppose a genie tells you that you will be in an air crash. You are allowed to choose what year you will be in the crash. What year should you choose to maximize your chance of survival?

Q3 Which month has the most crashes?

Q4 Where was the worst air disaster in aviation History?

Q5 How many people died?

Q6 How many people died in the air disaster with the most Survivors?

Q7 Which air operator has had the most fatalities, which has had second most?

Q8 What year was the most deadly for air travel?

Q9 What year produced the most survivors of air crashes?
