# Arithmetic Formatter Calculation Problem

Tell us what’s happening:
When running the program checker for my project I am passing 8 of the 10 sets, but for some reason two of the sets incorrectly calculate the operation. This only occurs when I am running the program on the replit program not on my own IDE. As far as I can tell from the bug report my program is outputting an inverted operator (switching from + to - or vice versa). If I manually input the list it will give me the correct numbers as well. Any help on what could be causing this would be greatly appreciated!

Below are the tests I am still failing:

``````E         - 3800      88      172     1028
E         + 3800       2       74      948

E         -   858     1028
E         +  -852      948
``````

``````def arithmetic_arranger(problems, display_results=False):
topl = ''
midl = ''

outputl = ''
