In this article, we will explain nested/inner functions in Python and how they work with examples. Nested (or inner) functions are functions defined within other functions that allow us to directly access the variables and names defined in the enclosing function. Nested functions can be used to create closures and decorators, among other things. Defining an inner/nested Function Simply use the def keyword to initialize another function within a function to define a nested function. The following program is to demonstrate the inner function in Python − Example # creating an outer function def outerFunc(sample_text): sample_text ... Read More

Recursion is a programming technique, in which a function calls itself one or more times in its body. Usually, it is returning the return value of this function call. If a function definition follows recursion, we call this function a recursive function. A recursive function has to be terminated before it can be used in a program. It terminates, if, with every recursive call, the solution of the problem becomes smaller and moves towards a base case, where the problem can be solved without further recursion. A recursion can lead to an infinite loop, if the base case is not ... Read More

In Python, you can define a method in such a way that there are multiple ways to call it. Depending on the function definition, it can be called with zero, one, two or more parameters. This is known as method overloading. In the given code, there is a class with one method, sayHello(). We rewrite as shown below. The first parameter of this method is set to None, which gives us the option to call it with or without a parameter. An object is created based on the class, and we call its method using zero and one parameter. To ... Read More

The problem includes printing the N-th centered pentadecagonal number for any input number N. A centered pentadecagonal number is a number that can be represented in the form of a figure with a dot in the centre and surrounded by successive layers of the pentadecagon i.e. 15-sided polygon. Here the successive layers of the pentadecagon depict that the first layer surrounding the dot in the centre will be 15-sided polygon, the next layer will be 30-sided polygon followed by a 45-sided polygon and so on. We can understand the concept of centered pentadecagonal with the below figures. The first ... Read More

The problem statement includes printing the N-th centered octagonal number for some positive integer N, which will be given by the user. A centered octagonal number is a type of number which can be represented in a pattern of figures. Every centered octagonal number can be represented as a dot in the centre surrounded by the successive layers of an Octagon. An octagon is a type of polygon in geometry which has 8 sides in it. The successive layers of an octagon means that the first layer surrounding the dot in the centre will be an octagon, the second ... Read More
