Pyhton 3.9.9 - don't work with fCC exercise

Hello there,
I’ve a problem with IDLE and the same with VisualCodeStudio.
Why the code don’t work?

in this exercise of fCC

“5 degrees” is not a valid number, float doesn’t extract the number from a string, it just converts a valid float from a string to a float

Yes, but the teacher in the course, change the string in float or int using float(…) or int(…) :man_shrugging:
I don’t understand why don’t work the exemple on my IDLE or VCS.
What I wrong?

python will not convert “5 degree” to a float. It can convert "5", or "5.0" or " 5.0 " tho
