Oops, try again.
compute_bill(['banana', 'apple', 'orange', 'pear']) returned 4 instead of 10.5

shopping_list = ["banana", "orange", "apple"]

stock = {
    "banana": 6,
    "apple": 0,
    "orange": 32,
    "pear": 15
}
    
prices = {
    "banana": 4,
    "apple": 2,
    "orange": 1.5,
    "pear": 3
}

# Write your code below!

def computebill(food):
    total = 0
    for item in food:
        total += prices[item]
    return total

print computebill(shopping_list)

In the console it gives me the right answer: 7.5. So I dont understand what the error message means...

Hey, dude.
You need print computebill(food)

def compute_bill(food):
total = 0
for item in food:
total += prices[item]
return total
print compute_bill(food)

If you look at the items from the shopping list you only have 3, banana, orange and apple and the cost for those 3 items = 4 + 1.5 +2 = 7.5

I've just tested the code and it does work.

shopping_list = ["banana", "orange", "apple"]

stock = {
"banana": 6,
"apple": 0,
"orange": 32,
"pear": 15
}

prices = {
"banana": 4,
"apple": 2,
"orange": 1.5,
"pear": 3
}

Write your code below!

def compute_bill(food):
total = 0
for item in food:
total += prices[item]
return total

print compute_bill(shopping_list)
