**Tell us what’s happening:**

Describe your issue in detail here.

my code runs and prints the code properly formatted in VSCode but when I copy and paste it into replit it fails every test. I created a main.py that imports and calls the function with similar parameters as what is on replit. I am coding in VSCode so I can work offline and save my work.

**Your code so far**

def arithmetic_arranger(*args):

```
for problems in args:
print(problems[0])
if error_checking(problems[0]) == True:
arranged_problems = format_problems(*args)
return arranged_problems
```

#check for errors

def error_checking(problems):

#check for 5 or less problems

print(problems)

```
if len(problems) > 5:
return "Error: Too many problems."
#loop through problems
for problem in problems:
problem = problem.split()
#print(problem)
for x in problem:
#check for operands containing more than 4 digits
if len(x) > 4:
return "Error: Too many digits"
#is digit test
isdigit = "0123456789"
for digit in problem[0]:
if digit not in isdigit:
return "Error: Operand must only contain digits."
for digit in problem[2]:
if digit not in isdigit:
return "Error: Operand must only contain digits."
#operator test
operator = "+-"
for digit in problem[1]:
if digit not in operator:
return "Error: Only additiion and subtrtaction allowed."
return True
```
