Scientific Computing with Python Projects - Arithmetic Formatter

Please help with my code. I don’t know where the problem lies after searching for hours. I keep getting this;
FAILED test_module.py::test_template[test_two_problems_with_solutions]
FAILED test_module.py::test_template[test_five_problems_with_solutions]

Your code so far

 def arithmetic_arranger(problems, solver = False):

  #problems should be less than 5. else Error: Too many problems.
  #addition and subtraction. Else Error: Operator must be '+' or '-'.
  #only numbers. else Error: Numbers must only contain digits.
  #only 4 digits in wideth. else Error: Numbers cannot be more than four digits.

  #split problems into singles

Challenge: Scientific Computing with Python Projects - Arithmetic Formatter

Link to the challenge:

Are you hosting your project on replit? If you could post a link to it, it would make it much easier for others to help troubleshoot the problem.

Yes, I did. Thank you. Please how do I do that?

Just paste the url to your project - it looks like replit.com/@username/projectname

<boilerplate-arithmetic-formatter - Replit>

Thank you. Just did that

Where did you paste the link?

I edited your post for readability. You must place the replit link inside angled brackets to make it show up.

I’ve edited your code for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (').

I think I got it now. Thanks

Thank you, I just pasted it now. Please help check the code

You don’t return anything if solver is true, other than that well done:

AssertionError: Expected solutions to be correctly displayed in output when calling "arithmetic_arranger()" with five arithmetic problems and a second argument of `True`.
E   assert None == ('   32         1      45      123      988\n'\n '- 698    - 3801    + 43    +  49    +  40\n'\n '-----    ------    ----    -----    -----\n'\n ' -666     -3800      88      172     1028')

(Indentation matters :sweat_smile: )
