# Learn Lambda Functions by Building an Expense Tracker - Step 41

The hint tells me I should have elif == ‘5’
I tried the code and an error is thrown. I am learning Python and in my code so far elif is not a variable. it is part of the if statement. So Ithere should be no comparing elif with 5. However when I put in the variable “choice” which is the variable assigned when I asked for in the input statement of my main() function,I get an error that my code does not pass. Please help

``````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)

def main():
expenses = []
while True:
print('\nExpense Tracker')
print('2. List all expenses')
print('3. Show total expenses')
print('4. Filter expenses by category')
print('5. Exit')

choice = input('Enter your choice: ')

if choice == '1':
amount = float(input('Enter amount: '))
category = input('Enter category: ')

elif choice == '2':
print('\nAll Expenses:')
print_expenses(expenses)

elif choice == '3':
print('\nTotal Expenses: ', total_expenses(expenses))

/* User Editable Region */

elif choice == '4':
category = input('Enter category to filter: ')
print(f'\nExpenses for {category}:')
expenses_from_category = filter_expenses_by_category(expenses, category)
print_expenses(expenses_from_category)
elif choice == '5':
print("Exiting the program")
