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
}

# Write your code below!
def compute_bill(food):
    total = 0
    for item in food:
        if stock > 0:
            total += prices[item]
            stock[item] = stock[item] - 1
        return total

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)
