# Coach Code ( Paint Cost).

I don't know why test 3 and 4 are failing in my code. Here it is : n = int(input()) cost =40.0 canvas = n*5 tax = int((cost+canvas)*0.1) total = round(cost + canvas + tax) print(total)

Marvellous Abia Why you use int when calculating tax

The instructions ask you to ROUND UP to the nearest whole number. Try ceil()

Mihai Apostol I can't believe that's what's been holding it. Thanks. It worked.

Please use search bar. Many had problems with this Code Coach Challenge. Do some research.

Marvellous Abia from math import ceil or import math and then to call it math.ceil()

Marvellous Abia You're welcome. And belive that, because when using int you were removing the decimal part of that result.

well this is what i use and i guarantee you that it works perfectly def cost(color): brush = 40 paint = color*5 tax = (brush+paint)*0.1 if (tax%5!=0): tax+=0.5 total = int(brush+paint+tax) return(total) n = cost(int(input())) print (n)

ceil() is not a default function. I think it has to be defined first.

from math import ceil n = int(input()) I just cost =40.0 canvas = n*5 tax = int((cost+canvas)*0.1) total = ceil(cost + canvas + tax) print(total) Is still giving the same issue. test 1,2, and 5 passed but 3 and 4 didn't. Those 2 guys didn't read, I guess that's why they failed.

do this it clears all the test cases, your solution dont not work cuz its not rounding up the number properly. def cost(color): brush = 40 paint = color*5 tax = (brush+paint)*0.1 if (tax%5!=0): tax+=0.5 total = int(brush+paint+tax) return(total) n = cost(int(input())) print (n)

to use ceil function import math and use ceil function as math.ceil import math def cost(color): brush = 40 paint = color*5 tax = math.ceil((brush+paint)*0.1) total = brush+paint+tax return(total) n = cost(int(input())) print(n)
