#### Exercise2

Write a Python algorithm which asks the user to enter two numbers **‘a’** and **‘b’** and display their **sum**: **a + b**.

#### Solution

# Ask the user to enter values of 'a' and 'b' a = float(input("Enter the first number: ")) b = float(input("Enter the second number: ")) # compute the sum of 'a' and 'b' sum = a + b # display sum print("The sum of", a, "and", b, "is", sum)

__Here’s how it works__:

**input() function:**used to asks the user to enter the first number and second number and stores them in the variables a and b, respectively.**The float() function:**is used to convert the user input to floating-point numbers, since the input() function always returns a string.**The sum of a and b:**is calculated and stored in the variable sum.**The print() function:**is used to display the sum of a and b, along with a descriptive message.**The values of a, b, and sum:**are inserted into the message using string concatenation.
