Trouble setting the attribute and incrementing by one..
Having trouble with this code challenge and not getting any hints as to what the issue is. Can someone help?
I am supposed to add a 'laps' attribute to the RaceCar class and set it to 0. Then in the method, 'run_lap', I need to increment laps by one every time that method is ran.
I've tried everything and I'm not figuring it out.
class RaceCar: def __init__(self, laps=0, color, fuel_remaining, **kwargs): self.color = color self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining self.laps = laps for key, value in kwargs.items(): setattr(self, key, value) def run_lap(self, length): fuel_remaining - (self.length * 0.125) laps += 1
laps is defined within init. Because it isn't a global variable it can't be used outside of that function.
