Python; have to use a for loop to ask "How many cookies were sold in week [-]". What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it?: for i in range(1,5): sold = float(raw_input("How many cookies were sold in week" , i , "? "))

    raw_input function only accepts 1 parameter -- a prompt string -- and you're giving it 3. what you probably wanted to do is to pass a formated string in there, so it should look as follow: for in in range(1,5): sold = float(raw_input("How many cookies were sold in week %d? " % i))

    note how this: "How many cookies were sold in week %d? " % i is actually a single string after it's fully evaluated (!)
