Create Purchasing Information and Receipts for Lovely Loveseats /sales_tax /error


I feel awkward asking this but after spending a considerable amount of time trying to make this work I couldn’t, I think everything is okay in the code line: this error keeps showing up.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 21, in
customer_one_tax = customer_one_total * sale_tax
NameError: name ‘sale_tax’ is not defined

lovely_loveseat_description = “Lovely Loveseat. Tufted polyester blend on wood. 32 inches high x 40 inches wide x 30 inches deep. Red or white.”
lovely_loveseat_price = 254.00

stylish_settee_description = “Stylish Settee. Faux leather on birch. 29.50 inches high x 54.75 inches wide x 28 inches deep. Black.”
stylish_settee_price = 180.50

luxurious_lamp_description = “Luxurious Lamp. Glass and iron. 36 inches tall. Brown with cream shade.”
luxurious_lamp_price = 52.15

sales_tax = .088

customer_one_total = 0
customer_one_itemization = “”

customer_one_total += lovely_loveseat_price
customer_one_itemization += lovely_loveseat_description

customer_one_total += luxurious_lamp_price
customer_one_itemization += luxurious_lamp_description

customer_one_tax = customer_one_total * sale_tax
customer_one_total += customer_one_tax

print(“Customer One Items:”)
print(“Customer One Total”)

customer_two_total = 0
customer_two_itemization = “”

customer_two_total += stylish_settee_price
customer_two_itemization += stylish_settee_description

customer_two_total += luxurious_lamp_price
customer_two_itemization += luxurious_lamp_description

customer_two_tax = customer_two_total * sale_tax
customer_two_total += customer_two_tax

print(“Customer Two Items:”)
print(“Customer Two Total”)

thanks for your time :kiss:

Hello @iwoa and welcome to the Codecademy Forums!

Please format your code; this article explains how to do so.

The issue you have is that you’ve created a variable named sales_tax but you’re using sale_tax in the rest of your code instead. You’re missing an “s” on line 21 (customer_one tax = customer_one_total + sale_tax). The same goes for customer_two_tax = customer_two_total * sale_tax.

thanks, any idea how can I run this code? I moved forward from the exercise I just tried with IDLE “SyntaxError: invalid character in identifier” if it’s not too much to ask thanks again.

Sorry, I’m not sure what you mean by that.
