What if I want to answer in decimal?

Following what the video taught, we can only answer integer for the second question.

I answer things like 5.6 for the second question, but it shows ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10 every time. how should I code so that I can answer decimal.

Could anyone help me? thank you very much

You could convert your number to a float() instead of int(). Optionally, you could use the decimal module.
