Polygon calculator, where is my mistake?

hello everyone, I am currently completing the polygon calculator and have encountered a couple of errors that i cannot seem to wrap my head around. On pycharm the code work and does what it is supposed to but on replit the test fail. Which have lead me to think that my mistake lies in the formatting and “general setup” of the code as opposed to it not being able to perform the the task described by the challenge.
Here is my code and below are the 6 tests that is are not passing. I checked the test modules and tried to find the source of my errors but failed. So I am sure that i must be missing something…
Some errors I just straight up not understand, like the first one for example: why does the test_rectangle_picture claim that I return “none” my methods all have a “return” and the code on pycharm works nicely? And what is wrong with the string representation of the shapes?

Thank you all for your help, I am sure that it must be some silly error, but these errors are even more frustrating when you know you are almost finished with a project with the exception of a few quick to fix bugs!

Why are you returning y? Are you supposed to print x? Should x have multiple rows?

I don’t see any code setting the string representation.

I am suppose to return a picture of the rectangle drawn by asterisks.
Here is the description of the method:

  • get_picture: Returns a string that represents the shape using lines of “*”. The number of lines should be equal to the height and the number of “*” in each line should be equal to the width. There should be a new line (\n) at the end of each line. If the width or height is larger than 50, this should return the string: “Too big for picture.”.

When i first attempted this my code was:

              x = (self.width) * ("*")
              print(x)
              print("")

but it didn’t seem to like that either, so I assumed that python wanted a return statement, that the tests would independently print.

I must have misinterpreted then what the task says? I assumed that if the information was passed as a string, one must first extract the information (hence the class method serving as an alternative constructor that will automatically parse the strings for me), and later in the “get_picture()” method if the information was given in the form of a string, rather than drawing a picture, it would return the string “Rectangle(width=3, height=6)”’)

Is this right, or have i completely misinterpreted?

Do you have the link to the challenge so I can read the instructions rather than trying to remember them?

https://replit.com/@Beatrixdroid/boilerplate-polygon-area-calculator-6#README.md

here it is!

Ok, so I remember right:

get_picture : Returns a string that represents the shape using lines of “". The number of lines should be equal to the height and the number of "” in each line should be equal to the width. There should be a new line ( \n ) at the end of each line. If the width or height is larger than 50, this should return the string: “Too big for picture.”.

You should not print. You need to construct a multi-line string and return it.


This

Additionally, if an instance of a Rectangle is represented as a string, it should look like: Rectangle(width=5, height=10)

means that you need to define the string representation. I’d Google repr (I think that’s the method)
