Can anyone tell me what is wrong with this code? Why is there a syntax error with 'B > 0?' https://gist.github.com/anonymous/6115943

    I'm sorry, I meant y > 0

    I usually put the condition in parenthesis

    Ah. Not a bad idea. I will do that and let you know.

    But you aren't really setting up your variables properly. I'm seeing a and y, which I'm not sure what they mean...I'd assign better variables so that we can troubleshoot better.

    Good call. I am going to go through and be more descriptive and then I'll get back to you.

    Sorry, just a sec. I forgot to convert a couple variables.

    I had a similar problem with the while loop and decided to just declare the variable before i started the loop. Keep at it it will all of a sudden come to you after you are so annoyed with it and it will look easy after that. I spent a major portion of my day/night yesterday conquering this vexing problem.

    There's a bunch of issues, regarding loops but also variables names. You should fix your variables names before trying to fix loops. I posted a comment on your Gist

    Btw, i forked your gist file to show you some naming errors and provide some advices. However, your code still wont work as is, as there are issues regarding your loops and tests (ex: your "if" statement checks if remainder is > 0 while you are already in a "while" loop designed to be executed only if remainder is > 0...).

    You have not declared what "remainder" is before the while loop. You cannot perform a comparsion between remainder and 0 unless remainder has a value. Also, you do not have the right number of brackets here: "initialmonthlyballance = round(float(((annualrate /12)*outbal)+outbal, 2)"
