Create Purchasing Information and Receipts for Lovely Loveseats Python

print("Customer One Items: " + customer_one_itemization)
print("Customer One Total: " + str(customer_one_total))

I’m using this code and it gives me zero errors when i print everything, but the mission is not accepting this to continue to the next one. Does anyone have an idea why this is?


Have you ticked off 20 out of 20 “Complete” at the bottom? It won’t let you progress if not.

Style note: Triple quotes are 99% used for docstrings, although they can certainly be used for lengthy quotations that contain newlines, if you would like the text to be nicely formatted as you read it in your script. In all other cases, quotations containing text material should be quoted with conventional double (or single) quotes.

Why do I have to manually check it? It always happened automatically untill now…

Free Form Projects do not have a lesson checker. If you have competed the project, make sure every step (including the video) has a checkmark so you get the Up Next prompt.

I followed the video and am in the same boat.

Hello @tag7921144564.

Make sure to check off all the steps as you complete them, as the exercise does not check them off automatically for you. Once you’ve checked off all the steps, you should be able to advance.

I worked that out. I think there’s something that could be nehanced in the UX. I missed the words and skipped straight on to the exercise. Also, the video didn’t match the exercise.

im on the same one but on question 14 and it says this Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 14, in
customer_one_tax = customer_one_total * sales_tax
TypeError: can’t multiply sequence by non-int of type ‘float’
I’ve found the answers online and it still isn’t working

Welcome to the forums!

Please post your code and format it according to the guidelines in this topic so that we can better see what went wrong.

According to the error message, one of those variables appears to be a sequence (list, tuple or str?).
