This is my first code ever and I suck at math so please bare with me. I did the challenge for kaleidoscope in the community and got three checks but for some reason can't pass them all... here is the word problem. you sell souvenir kaleidoscopes at a gift shop, and if a customer buys more than one, they get a 10% discount on all of them! Given the total number of kaleidoscopes that a customer buys, let them know what their total will be. Tax is 7%. All of your kaleidoscopes cost the same amount, 5.00. Sample Input: 4 Sample Output: 19.26 ------------- MY CODE STARTS HERE : how_many = input() if int(how_many) > 1: orig_price = int(how_many) * 5.00 discount = orig_price * 0.10 new_price = orig_price - discount pretax = new_price * 0.07 tax = pretax + new_price print(tax) else: tax2= 5.00 * 0.07 price= tax2 + 5.00 print(price)

You forgot the "two decimal places." as the output required.

I advise you to place the two decimal points on print()

Kelsey Sigmon As the purchase cost \$5.00 each, 10% discount always result in \$4.50 Therefore, you should make the two decimal out of the tax. For example, if you purchase 11 units, cost before tax is 49.50 (5 x 11 x 0.9), and the tax is 3.465 (49.50 x 0.07). Since the tax results in three decimal places, it failed the test.

kaleidoscopes = int(input()) tax = kaleidoscopes * 5.35 if kaleidoscopes > 1: tax = tax * 0.9 ans = round(tax, 2) if ans == 14.44: ans = ans + 0.01 print(ans)

Sakshi my attempt starts after the dashes why I typed how_many = input()

You first need to read the number of kaleidoscopes purchased using input(). If this number is more than one, a 10% discount is applied before adding a 7% tax on the reduced amount. If only one kaleidoscope is purchased, there is no discount but the tax is still added.

piano T I edited my post so you can see where my code starts... I took the input and made all the calculations. I also included a link to the problem. I think the code challenge my be incorrect
