How to solve "New driver's license" problem without using math.ceil, rather using this method below?

I try another method, 1. First I take input() from user and 2. define function that add user_name in other_4 list, 3. and .sort(), 4. then cut list in chunks by given "agendt_num" 5. Then order existing chunk number that where "me" object exist. 6. Lastly, print(existing_chunk_number * 20)

Orin Cook Because agent will solve the problem of person by their name, that's why it is sorted according to dictionary in alphabetical order. It's in the question.

Orin Cook Altaibaatar Enkhbat Inside the function, the other_names string is split into a list called names, and your_name is appended to this list. The names list is then sorted in alphabetical order. The variable position is assigned the index of your_name in the sorted names list and that's how it works.

Yes I got you Lothar ,actually i have a practice of watching solution early by just practicing 2 3 times and understanding the code and algorithm after that, it doesn't waste my time much on a single problem and I can cover more effectively. That's why i send others too.I will take care of that next time. Thanks for suggestion.

I don't understand what you're trying to do here, especially why you'd sort.

Altaibaatar Enkhbat I think that math.ceil would not be useful in the problem solution. Since you asked for an alternative approach, here is a way to solve it without sorting: 1. Take inputs from user 2. Split names into a list 3. Loop through the list and count how many names are alphabetically less than or equal to "my" name. (No sorting.) 4. Calculate wait time

You do not need use math.ceil method in this simple task("new driver's license "). If you show code, so we can help you with that
