# Math in python

How do I do math in gameblender python? I am well versed in VB. Do any cross reference tutorials exist to help me make this transitiion? (sorry for the newbieness of this question)

what kind of math are you trying to do?

also, have you checked the python docs for ā¦ python?

http://www.python.org/doc/2.3.4/lib/module-math.html

Very simpleā¦

``````
import math

Rad = 50
X = sin(rad)
Deg = math.degrees(asin(X))

A = 5
B = 7
A+B = 12

A*B = 35
A/B = 0.71428571428571428571428571428571

``````

And a math function:

``````
import math

def PlayWithMyNumber(Number):
Number=Number+5
Number=Number-math.sin(Number)
Number=Number*3
Number=Number/Number
return Number

``````
``````
A = 7
B=PlayWithMyNumber(A)
print B

``````

#Output is: 1.0000000000

Anything else?

You can do a: āfrom math import *ā instead of āimport mathā if you donāt like doing math.sin, math.x, etcā¦ if you do āfrom math import *ā than you can just do: sin(a), degrees(a), etcā¦

Enjoy.

The stupid forum gives you the [ code ] [ / code ] tags so you can do things like that:

``````import math

def PlayWithMyNumber(Number):
Number=Number+5
Number=Number-math.sin(Number)
Number=Number*3
Number=Number/Number
return Number
``````
