What Am I Supposed To do Here, Other Than Use the += Operator?


#1

Why isn’t there a place where I’m supposed to see the final solution in the terminus?

Even when I follow instruction - nothing shows up. I don’t understand how I’ve grasped a concept.

"january_to_june_rainfall = 1.93 + 0.71 + 3.53 + 3.41 + 3.69 + 4.50
annual_rainfall = january_to_june_rainfall

july_rainfall = 1.05
annual_rainfall += july_rainfall

august_rainfall = 4.91
annual_rainfall += august_rainfall

september_rainfall = 5.16
october_rainfall = 7.20
november_rainfall = 5.06
december_rainfall = 4.06"

What am I supposed to do here, other than use the operator? Nothing shows up when I run the code

Hi @rubysolver87286,

You need to add each month to annual_rainfall. The exercise already filled in July and August, so now you just need to copy that for September through December.


#3

Do I have to use “print” in order to either assign variables or see that my new month (month_rainfall=x") is being added?


#4

All print does is display some output, so it’s not necessary for updating a variable, but it is necessary if you want to see some output like what a variable’s value is.


#5

What does this error mean, and how do I fix it?

" File “script.py”, line 1
1398%11=remainder
SyntaxError: can’t assign to operator"

For the Arimathic exercise


#6

You’ve got the sides switched, you need to put the variable (remainder) at the beginning, then whatever value you want it to have.
