So I wrote this:
if weight <= 2: price_per_pound = 4.50 elif weight <= 6: price_per_pound = 9.00 elif weight <= 10: price_per_pound = 12.00 else: price_per_pound = 14.25 return weight * price_per_pound print(shipping_cost_drone(1.5)) def print_cheapest_shipping_method(weight): ground = shipping_cost_ground premium = shipping_cost_premium drone = shipping_cost_drone
It is basically saying what different shipping options are and how much they cost. The functions are not important for my question.
I needed to find the cheapest option depending on what the customer chooses as (weight). I wrote this:
if ground < premium and ground < drone: method = "standard ground" cost = ground if premium < ground and premium < drone: method = "premium ground" cost = premium if drone < ground and drone < premium: method = "drone" cost = drone print("The cheapest option available is $%.2f with %s shipping." % (cost, method) )
After I try to print some results and test it out, it tells me
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “script.py”, line 51, in
File “script.py”, line 35, in print_cheapest_shipping_method
if ground < premium and ground < drone:
TypeError: unorderable types: function() < float()
I don’t understand what the error is telling me. The tutorial video did the same thing and it worked for them. What am I doing wrong?
