I am new, but am working through the Lovely Loveseat Project on the Python 3 course, and running into an error on it, that I can’t seem to figure out. My code matches the walkthrough and hints to the best of my recognition and am seeking assistance. What am I missing?
We are adding determining sales_tax, and then adding that tax to the customer’s total. As this is the first time that I’ve posted in the forums, I’m hoping that my formatting of the code is correct to show.
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' 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 = "Luxorious Lamp. Glass and iron. 36 inches tall. Brown with cream shade. " luxurious_lamp_price = '52.15' sales_tax = .088 #this is the point where something is going wrong #We now have all of the items stored in variables for future use. 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 * sales_tax customer_one_total += customer_one_tax print('Customer One Items') print(customer_one_itemization) print('Customer One Total') print(customer_one_total)
The error that is coming up is in regards to the designation of the variable, customer_one_tax, and I have attempted to change the format of the sales_tax to all that I can think of. The error that is coming up is below here.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “script.py”, line 29, in
customer_one_tax = customer_one_total * sales_tax
TypeError: can’t multiply sequence by non-int of type ‘float’
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I am enjoying learning this, but am stuck and can’t figure it out.
