Exercise 41 

  1. Write a Rectangle class in Python language, allowing you to build a rectangle with length and width attributes.
  2. Create a Perimeter() method to calculate the perimeter of the rectangle and a Area() method to calculate the area of ​​the rectangle.
  3. Create a method display() that display the length, width, perimeter and area of an object created using an instantiation on rectangle class.
  4. Create a Parallelepipede child class inheriting from the Rectangle class and with a height attribute and another Volume() method to calculate the volume of the Parallelepiped.


class Rectangle:
# define constructor with attributes: length and width
def __init__(self, length , width):
self.length = length
self.width = width

# Create Perimeter method
def Perimeter(self):
return 2*(self.length + self.width)

# Create area method
def Area(self):
return self.length*self.width

# create display method
def display(self):
print("The length of rectangle is: ", self.length)
print("The width of rectangle is: ", self.width)
print("The perimeter of rectangle is: ", self.Perimeter())
print("The area of rectangle is: ", self.Area())
class Parallelepipede(Rectangle):
def __init__(self, length, width , height):
Rectangle.__init__(self, length, width)
self.height = height

# define Volume method
def volume(self):
return self.length*self.width*self.height

myRectangle = Rectangle(7 , 5)
myParallelepipede = Parallelepipede(7 , 5 , 2)
print("the volume of myParallelepipede is: " , myParallelepipede.volume())

The output is:
The length of rectangle is:  7
The width of rectangle is:  5
The perimeter of rectangle is:  24
The area of rectangle is:  35
the volume of myParallelepipede is:  70
