Thanks in advance! ## Problem Set 1, Problem 2 outstandingBalance = float(raw_input("Please enter the outstanding balance on the card: ")) interestRate = float(raw_input("Please enter the annual interest rate on the card: ")) monthlyInterestRate = interestRate/12.0 initialBalance = outstandingBalance paymentAmount = 0 monthsRequired = 1 while paymentAmount<=outstandingBalance: print ("here1") paymentAmount = paymentAmount+10 monthsRequired=1 outstandingBalance = initialBalance while monthsRequired<=12 and outstandingBalance>0: print ("here2") outstandingBalance = outstandingBalance * (1+monthlyInterestRate)paymentAmount monthsRequired = monthsRequired +1 if outstandingBalance<0: print ("Monthly payment to pay off debt in 1 year: " + str(paymentAmount)) print ("Number of months needed: " + str(monthsRequired)) print ("Balance: " + str(outstandingBalance))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can you use on of the code posting services, like the one on github or pastebin? See, if I copy your code from here, it will remove all formatting and I will have to edit the code just to try it and look for errors. =/ I see you have a lot of test prints in there, and by no output I assume you mean it never even does those. If so, then it is not even getting to the start of the loop, which is odd.
