# Help me to understand this. Iâ€™m stuck.

Youâ€™re making a shopping cart program. The shopping cart is declared as a list of prices, and you need to add functionality to apply a discount and output the total price. Take the discount percentage as input, calculate and output the total price for the shopping cart

I'm also a self learner. Apart from solving questions, it is a good practice to read others' code. We can learn many things by going through the code of other members who has solved a particular challenge. Python for beginners is easy to complete. But, it touches only the surface. If you really want to learn in depth, you can try Python Core, after beginners.

Yes, you don't have to print the price of each item after discount. Only print the total cost after discount. So, the print function should be outside the loop.

Thank you! Very helpfull. By the way, im studying Python by myself to get involved in asociated jobs. I started with beginning course to improve by time from 0. Do you have any other tips you want to offer me? Am i in the right path to become proffecional?

Given: The price of items in a shopping cart as a list To do: (i) Accept the discount percentage as input [Do not forget that input() function returns a value of the data type 'String'] (ii) Use a for loop and iterate through each item in the cart and calculate the total price after applying discount [Formula is already given For X% discount on \$Y price: Y - (Y*X/100)] If your input is x and y is the price, then iterate the for loop with y. Eg: cart = [ ] x = int(input()) total = 0 for y in cart: total = ________ print(total)

Still broke! I think if i add the formula to total each time, and i take print function outside for loop, then it should work. for y in cart: Total+= y-(y*x/100) print(total)
