[Problem Set 3 - Part B] When I run an error occurs: "Inconsistent identetion detected!" But I can't find where the problem is. Besides, the code was given. Did someone have the same problem?

it means that the spacing before a statement is wrong - not the same as that above it: for x in range(11): ....f = x **2 .....g = f//2 g has an extra space before it - the god python is not pleased

It can also be caused by switching between Idle and a good text editor. I gave up using Idle because it was changing my tabs to spaces in the file, and the interpreter realizes that 8 spaces is different from 2 tabs.

In IDLE, use the Ctrl-[ or the menu to "Dedent" everything. Then use the Ctrl-] to Indent everything as it should be. That usually works to solve these problems for me.
