I am learning python and using code coach - one specific problem I couldnt get right its called halloween candy. I dont know how to attach it to this post. But the code I wrote to solve it is: print (round (2/houses) + int (2/houses * 100)) I get the first two scenarios correct but the hidden test scenarios are wrong. I dont know what is the problem. And is there a way to see the hidden test scenarios in code coach? I am mostly using the sololearn phone app to code and study.

I see that you made a hopeful attempt to always round up, but it doesn't work. Solution: There is a function in the math library that always rounds up. Import the math library and use math.ceil().

It sounds like you are endeavoring to understand how to write your own ceil function. Here is how I would write it: def ceil(a): return int(a)+(a>int(a))

import math dollar = math.ceil(2/(int(input()))*100) print(dollar)

I should still be able to solve it without importing math.ceil I believe one of the scenarios is wrong. Here is my logic. I get 4 out of 5 scenarios correct if I code (rounding down all decimals): Print (int (round(2/houses) *100)) And I get one out of scenario correct if I round up all the decimals using the following code: Print (int (round(2/houses) * 100 +1)) So the code should be able to round up or down . As the following: houses = int(input()) x = round (2/houses) if int (x) == 0: print (int (2/houses * 100)) elif int(x) > 0: print (int (2/houses *100) + 1) Yet still it only solves 4 scenarios out of 5. If you could share the code to solve, and if possible without the math.ceil

I solved it using math.ceil, with the following code: houses = int(input()) x = (2/houses) import math print (math.ceil(x * 100)) Still th previous solution should have worked. Please be patiant with me, I am trying to understand the logic behind the codes.
