Learn Lambda Functions by Building an Expense Tracker - Step 29

Tell us what’s happening:

I tried different variation of this script below but no matter I try I get the same error message: Sorry, your code does not pass. Try again.

    choice = input('Enter your choice: ')
    if choice == str'1': 
        amount = input()   

Can someone please help me? thank you!

Your code so far

def add_expense(expenses, amount, category):
    expenses.append({'amount': amount, 'category': category})
    
def print_expenses(expenses):
    for expense in expenses:
        print(f'Amount: {expense["amount"]}, Category: {expense["category"]}')
    
def total_expenses(expenses):
    return sum(map(lambda expense: expense['amount'], expenses))
    
def filter_expenses_by_category(expenses, category):
    return filter(lambda expense: expense['category'] == category, expenses)

choice = input('Enter your choice: ')
if choice == str(1): <<<<<< when I use this variation of the string. I get the following error message:

Sorry, your code does not pass. Don’t give up.
You should have if choice == ‘1’: in your while loop:

When I postion the if statement as the next line under choice or anywhere else, I get the same error message that I initially reported (Sorry, your code does not pass. Try again.)

Hi @sonnyhot

I don’t understand why you have str in your code.
The quotes indicate you have a string.

Happy coding
