hey kNicola are the two study groups different you responded to the last post on retro.openstudy, is this a different study group?
add print numSmall, numMedium, numLarge to your code. There is an obvious error when it comes to calculating numSmall.
It stems from your calculation of numLeft.
I don't get what's wrong with it that is why on the next line i divide by 6? and where do you want me to add the print function?
Add the print function right after numSmall=numSmall/6
I added the print but its a huge loop and is giving me a lot of numbers which i don't want to sit and test by hand.
That's fine, but you should have noticed that numSmall routinely went into the negatives, while numMedium and numLarge functioned correctly.
Yes I did but in line i have a checker to take out negative solutions.
Oh, I know what the problem is. Sorry for all of this. Your counter is set too high. It's supposed to be 5 not 6. def mcdonalds(): count=0 numNuggets=1 while count<5: x=solution(numNuggets) if x==1: count=count+1 else: count=0 numNuggets=numNuggets+1 print numNuggets mcdonalds()
Thanks I actually noticed this when I was debugging but I did it the other way and made my counter start at 1. But I forgot to change the resets to 1. Thank you so much I have been stuck on this problem for a few days.
Should i post my final solution so other people can see what I did?
Hah, no problem. I felt really dumb there for a little while. You had your checking system set up differently from mine so I thought it was a problem with it. The negatives definitely threw me off. Sure, post it up.
Yeah everyone has there own style of coding. So its not your fault it's more so my fault for not putting in comments to help out.
For anyone who is working on this problem and needs a reference here is my completed code. http://dpaste.com/hold/525984/
