Scientific Computing with Python Projects - Budget App

Hi everyone. I wrote this code for the budget app project, but when I run it in replit, it gives me a traceback that I don’t understand. I’m pretty confused, because I believe that when I run the code at the terminal in Visual Studio Code it seems to work fine. Here is the link to my project in replit: boilerplate-budget-app - Replit

I would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks

Challenge: Scientific Computing with Python Projects - Budget App

Link to the challenge:

Are you running tests module in the VSCode or manually trying some examples?

Tests are very specific how the output should look like. Even single space in a wrong place (or missing one) will make the test fail. Usually the test output adds more information about the location of difference.

The height of each bar should be rounded down to the nearest 10.

Did you round down to the nearest 10?

It also looks like you have an extra \n character at the end of your final string.

Your output:

‘Perc[170 chars] 10| o o o \n 0| o o o \n ----------[206 chars] \n’ !=

Expected output:

'Perc[170 chars] 10| o o \n 0| o o o \n ----------[204 chars] t ’

Thanks, it was exactly that. I hadn’t realized that I was supposed to round it “DOWN” to the nearest 10.

Thanks, I already fixed the code
