# What's wrong with my code?

#1

I tried with different ways to have the answer, I think it was the short way to get it but I don't have any result with it. The 5 line it's the messy one. Any advice would be welcome, also if you take the time to explain me.

meal = 44.50
restaurant_tax = 6,75
tip = 15
cost = meal + ( meal * restaurant_tax) + ( meal * tip)
print cost

#2

Well, I got this like a good answer:

# Assign the variable meal the value 44.50 on line 3!

meal = 44.50
tax = 0.0675
tip = 0.15
cost_meal = meal + ( meal * tax )
total_cost = cost_meal + ( cost_meal * tip)
print total_cost

You forgot to assign the variable `total`, which the exercise asks you to assign. Thus, the code also raises an error when you print out the `total`, since it hasn't been defined.
Add this below "`meal = meal + meal * tax`":

``total = meal + meal * tip``
