Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, I don't know how to probe it, should I put an image of my code too here?? or through M.P ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry I said mp (spanish from PM). Let me check frist the variable, beacuse I assumed like the enter value from the rates were 0.02 instead of 2, you think it can be an error there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0jajaja que pequeño es el mundo, yo soy de Perú, ok let's talk in english, I want to improve it, i think I found the reason, look how I initialized my variables. balance = 5000 annualInterestRate = 0.18 monthlyPaymentRate = annualInterestRate/12 Minimummonthlypaymentrate = 0.02 totalpaid = 0 updatedbalance = 0 Minimummonthlypayment = 0 I assumed that  for example annualInterestRate would be enter as 0.18 instead of 18 (%)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why do you have Minimummonthlypayment = 0 and updatedbalance = 0 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hahaha I know those are just initialized values from the python code, but what I want you to see is that I create a mess, and I wrote that mess on the edX site.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, did you write the value balance = 5000 into the code you entered into edX ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you assigned actual parameters to balance and annualInterestRate in the python shell that you use to enter your answer into edX that is the problem. It says in the instructions that the site will assign values to balance and annualInterestRate automatically. Simply do not define them in your answer and you should be okay.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0exsactly as Turing says. You must not assign actual parameters to balance and annualInterestRate. Gl!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And the other variables I use let's say "totalpaid" should be initialized??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This are the correct bind to values right?? balance = 5000 annualInterestRate = 18 monthlyPaymentRate = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, after 5 attempts, I see the option "See full output", the values were 5000, 0.04 I think and 0.02, not 4 or 2 like I thought! thank you both for the help!! now another question. It says correct, but I have to wait untill I get the "Problem 1: Paying the minimum" mark as done, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it should be recorded as soon as you get the green checkmark check the "progress" section to make sure you got your 10 points for the exercise and move on to part 2
