# Sal's Shipping - Curious result

https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-python-3/projects/sals-shipping

I’m working on Sal’s Shipping. I get the final results just fine and pass the quiz. However when I run my code I get a new line, then “None” and then new line before printing my next print function.

``````def cheap_ship(weight):
if weight > 10:
cost = 4.75 * weight
elif weight > 6:
cost = 4.00 * weight
elif weight > 2:
cost = 3.00 * weight
else:
cost = 1.50 * weight
cost += 20
return cost

prem_ship = 125.00

def drone_ship(weight):
if weight > 10:
cost = 14.25 * weight
elif weight > 6:
cost = 12.00 * weight
elif weight > 2:
cost = 9.00 * weight
else:
cost = 4.50 * weight
return cost

def compare(weight):
if cheap_ship(weight) < prem_ship and drone_ship(weight):
print("Use cheap shipping. It will cost you: "+str(cheap_ship(weight)))
elif prem_ship < cheap_ship(weight) and drone_ship(weight):
print("Use premium shipping. It will cost you: \$125.00")
else:
print("Use drone shipping. It will cost you: " + str(drone_ship(weight)))

print(compare(4.8))

print(compare(41.5))
``````

This is what my Terminal looks like:

``````Use cheap shipping. It will cost you: 34.4
None
Use premium shipping. It will cost you: \$125.00
None
``````

Where do the None come from?! Thanks!

Hello @systemwhiz65349, and welcome to the Codecademy Forums!

Here, you are displaying the value returned by the `compare` function, which is `None`, because no return value is specified within the function definition:

``````print(compare(4.8))

print(compare(41.5))
``````

All you really need is:

``````compare(4.8)

compare(41.5)
``````

I overthought it! Thanks for the quick reply!
