NumString

I don't understand why its not accepting this and the answer i could find on the discussion board is the same code I've written

numstring.py
class NumString:
    def __init__(self, value):
        self.value = str(value)

    def __str__(self):
         return self.value

    def __int__(self):
        return int(self.value)

    def __float__(self):
        return float(self.value)

    def __add__(self, other):
        if '.' in self.value:
            return float(self) + other
        return int(self) + other

    def __radd__(self, other):
        return self + other

    def __iadd__(self, other):
        self.value = self + other
        return self.value

    def __mul__(self, other):
        if '.' in self.value:
            return float(self) * other
        return int(self) * other

    def __rmul__(self, other):
        return self * other

You didn't say which task you were on, but this code does pass task 1 (I confirmed it by pasting it directly into the challenge).

Task 2 involves adding __imul__, which still needs to be done.
