Absolute n00b here so take it easy on me. I am making my way through the Data Science course, and gotten through to a section asking me to do a Medical Insurance Project.
I am trying to use the += operator, but it is not working as it should.
# create the initial variables below age = 28 smoker = 0 bmi = 26.2 sex = 0 num_of_children = 3 # Add insurance estimate formula below insurance_cost = 250 * age - 128 * sex + 370 * bmi + 425 + num_of_children + 24000 * smoker - 12500 Message1 = 'This persons insurance cost is ' Message2 = str(insurance_cost) Message3 = ' dollars' MessageComplete = Message1 + Message2 + Message3 print(MessageComplete) # Age Factor age += 4 new_insurance_cost = 250 * age - 128 * sex + 370 * bmi + 425 + num_of_children + 24000 * smoker - 12500 change_in_insurance_cost = insurance_cost - new_insurance_cost
The New insurance Cost is meant to add the age by four, but the I get the same result despite using this operator.
Any idea why?
