The problem is the 4th line. I changed the code little bit, check it amount = int(input("Enter the investement amount:")) years = int(input("Enter the number of years:")) rate = int(input("Enter the rate as a %:")) endingbalance = 0 print("%4s" % "Year", "%8s" % "Starting balance", "%6s" % "% Interest", "%7s" % "Ending balance") for i in range(years): interest = (amount*rate)/100 endingbalance = amount + interest print(i, "%15d" % amount, "%10d" % interest, "%12d" % endingbalance) amount = endingbalance print("Ending Balance is", endingbalance)
