 # Arithmetic formatter not working

I don’t know what is wrong with the code. The code must give multiple answers(if there are two problems like `arithmetic_arranger(["32 + 698", "5 + 3"])` the output should be two answers ) But It only gives single one.

Here’s the code:

``````def arithmetic_arranger(problems, answer=True):
arranged_problems = ""
if len(problems) > 5:
return "Error: Too many problems."

first_line = ""
second_line = ""
third_line = ""
fourth_line = ""
for problem in problems:
firsts, operator, seconds = problem.split()

if operator in ["+", "-"]:
if operator == "+":
ans = str(int(firsts) + int(seconds))
else:
ans = str(int(firsts) - int(seconds))
else:
return "Error: Operator must be '+' or '-'."
if not firsts.isnumeric() or not seconds.isnumeric():
return "Error: Numbers must only contain digits."
elif (len(firsts) > 4 or len(seconds) > 4):
return "Error: Numbers cannot be more than four digits."
else:
pass

greater = (len(firsts) if len(firsts) > len(seconds) else len(seconds))
first_line += " " * (greater - len(firsts) + 2) + firsts + " " * 4
second_line += (operator + " " * (greater - len(seconds) + 1) + seconds +
" " * 4)
third_line += "-" * (greater + 2) + " " * 4
fourth_line += (" " * (greater - len(ans) + 2) + ans + " " * 4)

if answer:
arranged_problems = (first_line + "\n" + second_line + "\n" +
third_line + "\n" + fourth_line)
else:
arranged_problems = (first_line + "\n" + second_line + "\n" +
third_line)
return arranged_problems

``````

The error:

Please let me know what’s wrong. I’ve been solving this problem for almost two weeks

Take a look at the part of code that’s supposed to be responsible for adding problems to the result. Try figure out if that’s working as expected and if not, at what point something is not as it should be.

This line runs through all problems and writes it into 0-D variables. Ofcourse at the end you only have one value in each.

I assume you need to indent the entire following code except the return - so it executed per problem.
