    My code is producing no output and i can't figure out why. 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))

    Can 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.

    Hmmm.... What version of Python are you using and did you save the file as a .py?

    Mechanical Mooc is starting their new round of Python class... so it drives up the Python business.
