Oops, try again. calling compute_bill with a list containing 1 apple, 1 pear and 1 banana resulted in 4 instead of the correct 7


shopping_list = ["apple", "pear", "banana"]

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 item in food:
        if stock[item] > 0:
            total += prices[item]
            stock[item] -= 1
            return total


#2

total += prices[item]

You are missing a math operator.
prices[item] does not equal prices "times" [item] in Python.


#3

Sorry, ignore that. Change your 'return' indentation so it lines up with 'for'
