i followed the guide to the letter but when I print transactions clean there is no whitespace. when I seperate it out into the individual variables it adds so much whitespace and wont let me strip it off again. I honestly dont understand what is going on. Other threads here dont seem to quite have the same issue. Please help.
I guess you could change
to remove more whitespace there.
Also, please post your code by using the </> button and then pasting the code on lines between the ``` and ```
daily_sales_replaced = daily_sales.replace(";,;", "+") daily_transactions = daily_sales_replaced.split(",") daily_transactions_split =  for transaction in daily_transactions: daily_transactions_split.append(transaction.split("+")) transactions_clean =  for transaction in daily_transactions_split: transaction_clean =  for data in transaction: transaction_clean.append(data.replace("\n", "").strip(" ")) transactions_clean.append(transaction_clean) print(transactions_clean) customers =  sales =  thread_sold =  for transacion in transactions_clean: customers.append(transaction) sales.append(transaction) thread_sold.append(transaction) #print(transactions_clean) #print(customers) #print(thread_sold) print(sales) total_sales = 0 for sale in sales: total_sales += float(sale.strip("$"))
that worked but i dont understand why it added the whitespace. Do you understand why? Also thank you sooo much!
