Calculating rental_car_cost


#1



calculating rental_car_cost


Error message reads "Oops, try again. It looks like rental_car_cost returns 120 instead of the correct amount (100) for 3 days."


I can't figure out where I went wrong with my code. I'll also point out that I'm experimenting with the 3 <= days <= 6 to see if that is valid, which I can't see yet. If it is not valid, then I will change that to days == 3 or 4 or 5 or 6. But I'm sure there is a better way than that.


def rental_car_cost(days):
    if days == 1 or 2:
        return days * 40
    elif 3 <= days <= 6:
        return days * 40 - 20
    elif days >= 7:
        return days * 40 - 50

Lol, I just realized that the error is on the same line, but I changed it to elif days == 3 or 4 or 5 or 6
return days * 40 - 20, but like before it still didn't work.

see your second instruction

Calculate the cost of renting the car:
Every day you rent the car costs $40.

so at first calculate the total value.like

total=40*days

now if you rent the car for 7 or more days, you get $50 off your total.

here you did

if days == 1 or 2:

what does this mean?i cant understand why did you takedays == 1 or 2 you just have to check if days are more than or equal to 7

so i would do like

if days >= 7:

now you get $50 off your total.how can i get it? think

and you can see the example too in this lesson.understand that
