# Scientific Computing with Python Projects - Arithmetic Formatter

Tell us what’s happening:
To be perfectly honest I can’t find the issue with my code but it is saying that I am having errors in my code it is saying that there are AssertionError: Expected different output when calling "arithmetic_arranger()

and this is everything I have so far
