# 12. Stocking Out

#1

i keep getting this message but i cant figure out why.
i checked all posts about it this exercise but i just dont get it
Oops, try again. calling compute_bill with a list containing 1 apple, 1 pear and 1 banana resulted in 2 instead of the correct 7

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

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

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

def compute_bill(food):
total = 0
for item in food:
if stock > 0:
total += prices[item]
stock[item] = stock[item] - 1

a function ends the moment a return keyword is reached, this currently happens inside the first run of your loop, change the indent of return so the whole loop can run

#3

i also had to replace item with number and now it runs. Thank you!

#4

this is all good but does it return the remaining stock or does it only bring the total (since return total is the last argument)
