#1



https://www.codecademy.com/courses/python-beginner-en-qzsCL/1/2?curriculum_id=4f89dab3d788890003000096

Don't worry about the code.It's correct.What i can't understand is why in the example we multiply the "apples" with the bigger weight and "bananas" with the smaller and why int the exercise we do the exact opposite.Help?


Replace this line with your code.

it just weight , if you are a teacher you will give the bigger weight to tests and smaller weight to homework .. , another teacher can give the same weight to all ....


#3

So it's not that relevant

#5
