:point_right: Your program does no input validation.

There's nothing special about "exit", you could get the same error typing "banana". When the program attempts to convert the input to a number, it causes an error. The only non-number the program can currently handle is "quit".

There's nothing wrong, later in the course you will learn how to catch exceptions and handle errors like this.
