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 , "? "))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1raw_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))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1note how this: "How many cookies were sold in week %d? " % i is actually a single string after it's fully evaluated (!)
