Error code is:
Oops, try again. get_letter_grade(90) returned 'F' instead of 'A' as expected.

Take a look at the conditional operator you have chosen for the first if statement in the function get_letter_grade. Essentially what is happening is that when 90 is inputted, it does not match any of the statements so it gets to the else and returns 'F'.


#3

i put in, int = score and made if score >= 90 but now it says, get_letter_grades(89) returned A instead of B as expected


#4

**i put in score = int


#5

Assuming all you changed was score >= 90 then it 89 should return B. Can you post the code that you are now using?


#6

nevermind, i took out score = int now and it works since i fixed the 90 thing. thank you
