Hey there!

I’m brand new to coding and i’m just learning the ropes.

I wish for someone to kind of clear the air here on an issue i found within the lesson: Nested Conditional Statements.

Now, first of all, im not too sure if this is an actually error/human mistake or if there is an underlying reason why this is the way it is, so if someone can shed some light on this, it would be much appreciated!!

Im attaching a screenshot of the issue i have found to show what i believe to be is an issue.

The issue in question is that your telling us to return the value as .85, WITHOUT the zero.

i have completed this lesson and it requires you to add a zero in the front, and return the value as 0.85.

On previous lessons, as you can see in the screenshot near the bottom of OUR code, you asked us to return the value as .50 and not 0.50…

Thanks for your feedback.

Welcome to the forums!

This is just a minor error in the instructions. 0.85 and .85 are the same in terms of their numerical value. Your solution is correct. You can’t return a float without the zero at the beginning if the value is between -1 and 1. If you’d like to report this, you can report it through the Get Unstuck button in the bottom right corner or submit a bug report in the Community:Bug Reporting category on the forums.

Gotcha! Thanks for clearing that up. Your the best!! :smile:
