using Python Modules

I have this Python Code:

def test1(weight):
    return weight * 0.45

def test2(weight):
    return weight/ 0.45

Open in new window

I want to call the methods above from this program and pass the wight argument for instance 200
from mod1 import test1,test2

Open in new window

however, it seems like if I do not specify the weight  in Mod1.py   the calling code will fail.

C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38\python.exe C:/Python-Projects/Mydjangoproject/test.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:/Python-Projects/Mydjangoproject/test.py", line 1, in <module>
    from mod1 import test1,test2
  File "C:\Python-Projects\Mydjangoproject\mod1.py", line 3, in <module>
TypeError: test1() missing 1 required positional argument: 'weight'

Process finished with exit code 1[code]
