In the "simple_calc" and "avg" functions, you have a quit test. For example:

        if user_decision == "quit":
            comp()  # <-- here's the issue

Since this function was called by the main loop, instead of calling the main loop again you should just "break" or "return" back to it. Otherwise these functions keep recursively calling each other.

Thanks steven it worked, I understood the problem
