Here are a few challenges that you should be able to complete based on the knowledge you have currently.

# Challenge 1.1

## Objective

Write a function that takes a text string (i.e. `text_var = "Hello World"`

) prints it back out with a border above and below it.

## Hints

- You need to count the number of characters in a string, use the
`len(text_var)`

function - Use the equal sign (
`=`

) for the border - The function should create the same number of
`=`

characters as the number of characters in the string

## Solution

Here are a few examples:

# Challenge 1.2

## Objective

Write a set of Python statements that can find the length of each side of this right triangle.

Given the following:

- Angle C is 90 degrees
- Angle B is 54 degrees
- Side a has a length of 4 inches

## Hints

- Use the Math library
- Use basic Trigonometry (if you need help, ask)
- You will probably need to convert degrees to radians (there’s a function for that)

# Challenge 1.3

## Objective

Create and print Pascal’s triangle by showing 10 levels. Have each level’s list in one big list (i.e. `pascals_triangle = [[1], [1, 1], [1, 2, 1], [etc.]]`

). You cannot just write `[1,3,3,1]`

in your code, you must find it through an algorithm.

You can append a list after you have created it. For example,
