# Arithmetic Arranger

Hello everyone! I’ve been trying to solve these errors for days, checked many other forum posts, and even substituted the spaces and new lines in my code to see what’s wrong with the spacing but to no avail.

Testing the exact same code on another repl.it site gave the correct output, but passing it into the test page didn’t If someone could point me out to the mistakes I’m making, I would thank you very very much!!

(Also I don’t know why but the indent seems to be a bit off here, sorry. This is the link to my repl.it: boilerplate-arithmetic-formatter - Replit

Hello, did you remember that the question says: The function should optionally take a second argument. When the second argument is set to `True` , the answers should be displayed.

Otherwise, we need to not return the answers.

OHHH I completely overlooked that, thank you so much!!!
