Python Python Basics (Retired) Things That Count Things That Count

Task 1 no longer passing

Every time I add estimate = it says Task 1 is no longer passing.

age = 23
days = age * 52 * 7
decades = age / 10

estimate = decades.int 

summary = "I am {} days old! That's about {} decades!" (days, estimate)

That is the code I'm trying, did I mess something up in the beginning that is causing that error in particular?

decades, a float, doesn't have an attribute named int, so decades.int will throw an exception.

Since all of the previous tests are run against every step, the exception is making the test runner thing step 1 is failing.

You need to round your estimate, not make it an integer.

You also forgot to add .format the end of your summary.

estimate = round(decades)

summary = "I am {} days old! That's about {} decades!".format(days, estimate)

Hope this helps you out!

Hi Nick,

For estimate you want to round off the decades using the round() function.

For the summary variable you're missing .format
