Problem 1(45 points): In this problem, you are expected to write a Python program “”.
You should implement a Python function avgFirstThreeDigit() that, when a given list of 3-4 or 5 digit
integers, returns the average of sum of the first three digits of each integers in the reversed order.
Read data from “Integers.txt”, and put them in a list named ListIntegers. Please do not forget use
semicolon as delimiter.
A sample input-output is provided below:
#Read data from file, do not implement list shown below. It is just a sample.
ListIntegers = [18957, 30647, 4653, 1230, 168, 501, 99985, 87965, 534]
output= avgFirstThreeDigit(ListIntegers)
This program should output:
Problem 2(55 points) Mr. McCarthy and his family want to buy a new house. There are five houses
they like, but they must consider several factors to decide which the best one is. These factors are
the initial cost of the house, the estimated annual fuel costs, and annual tax rate. In this problem,
you are expected to write a Python program “” that will determine the total cost after a
10 year period for each set of a house data in “HouseData.txt” file. You should read the costs from
file and put them in a two-dimensional list named bulletList. Use “ ” (keyboard space bar) as
delimiter. Implement three functions whose names are calculateTotalCost(), displayCosts() and
 calculateTotalCost() function should calculate the total cost after 10 year period for each
house and put the results in a list named ResultList.
HINT: To calculate the total house cost, add the taxes for 10 years and the fuel cost for 10
years to initial house cost. Taxes for 10 years can be calculated by multiplying initial house
cost by tax rate and 10.
 displayCosts() function should display the total costs of all houses calculated in
CalculateTotalCost() function.

 selectBestBuy() function should determine which house they should buy, of course, it should
be the cheapest one in the overall.
 calculateTotalCost() function should be called by other functions.

In “HouseData.txt” file, each row holds necessary data (initial house cost, the estimated
annual fuel cost and annual tax rate) for one house. Initial house costs are hold in first colon,
the estimated annual fuel costs are hold in second colon and the last column holds annual
tax rates.
A sample input-output is provided below:
This program should output:

 Your programs will be executed in DEV machine, please make it work on dev before submitting. For
example, you should use
syntax to execute your first program in DEV machine. If you use “pyton” syntax, DEV
machine executes your program according to python 2.7.
 Do not miss the submission date.
 Please do not make any change in input text files, only read data from them.
 Input file names will be fixed, you can hardcode them into your program.
 Save all your work until the assignment is graded.
