# Scientific Computing with Python Projects - Arithmetic Formatter - Calculations not being printer next to each other

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
Hello,

I am doing the arithmetic formatter challenge, so far I got all the calculation showing properly, I am still half way; however, for some reason when the calculations are printed, they are printed one below the other instead of one next to each other.

NOTE: ‘I am printing the result instead of returning because I am doing this in Visual Studio code first’

``````def arithmetic_arranger(problems):
arranged_problems = ''

if len(problems) > 5:
return "Error: Too many problems"

for num in problems:
numbers = num.split()

numa = numbers[0].isnumeric()
numb = numbers[2].isnumeric()

if numbers[1] not in '-+':
return "Error: Operator must be '+' or '-'."

if numa is not True or numb is not True:
return "Error: Numbers must only contain digits"

if len(numbers[0]) > 4 or len(numbers[1]) > 4:
return "Error: Numbers cannot be more than four digits."

else:

value1 = numbers[0]
value2 = numbers[2]
operator = numbers[1]

if operator == '+':
value3 =int(numbers[0]) + int(numbers[2])
if operator == '-':
value3 =int(numbers[0]) - int(numbers[2])

lengtha = len(numbers[0])
# lengthb = len(numbers[2])
lengthb =max(len(numbers[0]), len(numbers[2]))

spaceb = lengthb+2
line=spaceb
temp_problems=' '

value3 = str(value3)

top = value1.rjust(spaceb) + '  '
bottom = operator + value2.rjust(spaceb-1) + ' '
base = '-'*line + ' '
result = value3.rjust(spaceb) + ' '

temp_problems += top+'\n'+bottom+'\n'+base+'\n'+result+'\n

arranged_problems = temp_problems
print(arranged_problems)
