Currently not "Making a Purchase"


#1



It would be great if someone could look at my code and let me know what I'm doing wrong. Nothing seems to work really...


Oops, try again. compute_bill(['banana', 'apple', 'orange', 'pear']) returned 3 instead of 10.5

However in the console it says
"2
None "


Replace this line with your code. 
shopping_list = ["banana", "orange", "apple"]

stock = {
    "banana": 6,
    "apple": 0,
    "orange": 32,
    "pear": 15
}
    
prices = {
    "banana": 4,
    "apple": 2,
    "orange": 1.5,
    "pear": 3
}

# Write your code below!
def compute_bill(food):
    total = 0 
    for item in food: 
        total =+ prices[item]
    return total 
print compute_bill(shopping_list)


#2

here:

total =+ prices[item]

the shorthand you are trying to use here should be +=
