Not sure why its not passing

Hello guys.

Im confused.

when i run in my ide the code has the correct behavior.

Anyone can see why its not passing the test?

thanks in advance

movement.py
# EXAMPLES:
# move((1, 1, 10), (-1, 0)) => (0, 1, 10)
# move((0, 1, 10), (-1, 0)) => (0, 1, 5)
# move((0, 9, 5), (0, 1)) => (0, 9, 0)

def move(player, direction):
    x, y, hp = player
    a, b = direction
    if 10>(x + a)<0:
        hp -= 5
    elif 10>(y + b)<0:
        hp -= 5
    else:
        x += a
        y += b
    return x, y, hp

10>(x + a)<0 is not a valid expression

The rules of operator associativity don't accomodate building a complex expression like that. But you can combine multiple expressions using "or" if you want.

Also, it looks like one of your comparisons is reversed. And the grid limit is 9, not 10.

    if x + a > 9 or x + a < 0:

If you look closely at your code and follow through with the shown test numbers, it's not really doing what is asked.

You want to first check for (x + a) or (y + b) to be greater than 9, not 10, because 9 is already the edge/wall.

Also, you can't use the range syntax (x < y < z) because you're actually looking for values outside of the range.

Instead, use an or in the conditionals, and repeat the (x + a) part:

if (x + a) < 0 or (x + a) > 9:
