problem with class method
#1
Hi experts. I am new to Python but understand programming and have a fair idea about it. I need your help for following.

I am trying to execute the following code but getting an error. Both error and code provided below.

class Circle():
    pie=3.14
    def __init__(self,radius=1):
        self.radius=radius
        self.area=pie*radius*radius
        
        
    def Circum(self):
        return(2*self.pie*self.radius)

mycircle=Circle()
mycircle.Circum()     # I get error here when calling this function

Error:
TypeError: Circum() takes 0 positional arguments but 1 was given

hm, that is strange. The actual error I get is
Error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/boyan/sandbox/classes/enemy.py", line 11, in <module> mycircle=Circle() File "/home/boyan/sandbox/classes/enemy.py", line 5, in __init__ self.area=pie*radius*radius NameError: name 'pie' is not defined
you can fix that by changing it to self.pie
then the code will run, but in order to see the output of Circum, you need to add print()
e.g. print(mycircle.Circum())

As your radius is a default argument,then so can pie be.
It can also be be a class attribute with self.pie as @buran suggests.
class Circle:
    def __init__(self, radius=1, pie=3.14):
        self.radius = radius
        self.pie = pie
        self.area = self.pie * self.radius * self.radius

    def circum(self):
        return(2 * self.pie * self.rad
Use:
>>> mycircle = Circle()
>>> mycircle.circum()
6.28

>>> # Can change radius,pie is the same as it always has been 
>>> mycircle = Circle(2)
>>> mycircle.circum()
12.56
Also look at PEP-8,for small changes that i made.
