Task #1

Create a script that accepts two strings, let us call it, “stones” and “jewels”. It should print the count of “alphabet” from the string “stones” found in the string “jewels”. For example, if your stones is “chancellor” and “jewels” is “chocolate”, then the script should print “8”. To keep it simple, only A-Z,a-z characters are acceptable. Also make the comparison case sensitive.

Task #2

Create a script that prints mean angles of the given list of angles in degrees. Please read wiki page that explains the formula in details with an example.

Task #3

We decided to put the optional API task on hold for the time being, while we are working on the format.

Last date to submit the solution 23:59 (UK Time) Sunday 22nd September 2019.
