3.4.2.1. Exercise: Function arguments#

Create a function named print_info() that, when it is called using:

print_info(1, "Catherina", "Smith", 20, 1.5, 50.2)

prints this:

=============
Participant 1: Catherina Smith
20 years old
Height: 1.5 m
Weight: 50.2 kg
BMI: 22.31
=============

Then try your function. Use clear names for your function’s arguments.

Note

The body-mass index (BMI) is calculated using \(\text{weight}/\text{height}^2\).

    print(f"Height: {height} m")
    print(f"Weight: {weight} kg")
    print(f"BMI: {weight / (height ** 2):.2f}")
    print("=============")
