Why does this keep saying " Oops, try again. compute_bill(['banana', 'apple', 'orange', 'pear']) returned 4 instead of 10.5"


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 key in food:
        total += prices[key]
        return total


#2

Observe how it got that result (how can you do that?) and compare to how you would have computed a result based on that argument


#4

It worked . Just moved the total statement from inside the loop and used it outside the loop. Thanks :slight_smile:
