Python program to generate random weight and print the shipping rate and charge by selection statement.

Python Program

 

Shipping Charges

 

The Fast Freight Shipping Company charges the following rates:

 

Weight of Package                                                    Rate per Pound

2 pounds or less                                                          $1.10

Over 2 pounds but not more than 6 pounds                $2.20

Over 6 pounds but not more than 10 pounds             $3.70

Over 10 pounds but not more than 20 pounds            $4.50

Over 20 pounds                                                          package cannot be shipped

 

Write a program that generates a random number (between 1 and 50 inclusive) that represents the weight of a package. The program should then display the weight of a package , the rate per Pound, and the shipping cost. If the package weight is more than 20, display the package weight and a message that the package is over 20 pounds and cannot be shipped.

 

Sample output:

Package weight: 5

Shipping rate: $ 2.2

Shipping charge: $ 11.0

import random

for i in range (3):
     r = random.randint(1, 50)
     print(“Package weight: “, r)
     if r <= 2 :
         print(“Shipping rate: $ 1.10”)
         print(“Shipping charge: $”, r * 1.10)
     elif 2 < r <= 6 :
         print(“Shipping rate: $ 2.20”)
         print(“Shipping charge: $”, r * 2.20)
     elif 6 < r <= 10 :
         print(“Shipping rate: $ 3.70”)
         print(“Shipping charge: $”, r * 3.70)
     elif 10 < r <=20 :
         print(“Shipping rate: $4.50”)
         print(“Shipping charge: $”, r * 4.50)
     elif r > 20 :
         print(“The package is over 20 pounds and cannot be shipped”)

     print()
