Here is a correct example for the “Transportation” exercise from the Python course from Codeacademy:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 | def hotel_cost(nights): return 140 * nights def plane_ride_cost(city): if city == "Charlotte": return 183 elif city == "Tampa": return 220 elif city == "Pittsburgh": return 222 elif city == "Los Angeles": return 475 def rental_car_cost(days): cost = 40 * days if days >= 7: cost = 40 * days - 50 elif days >= 3: cost = 40 * days - 20 return cost |

Instruction: “if you rent the car for 7 or more days, you get $50 off your total.”

So the line should be cost = 40(dollars) * days(input) – 50(dollars).

## 3 COMMENTS

This isn’t working in codecademy!!! there is an error that needs to be fixed!

the error isn’t in the code its in the website.

There is no error on the website, the instructions are just a little vague.

TIP: remember to define that the day range for the middle step (days * 40 – 20) is BOTH greater than or equal to 3 days AND less than 7 days.

Also, the instructions neglect to mention that you need to define a base cost for less than 3 days, which will have the default cost of days*40.

SPOILER!!!

The following code is correct:

def rental_car_cost(days):

if days >= 7:

cost = days*40-50

elif days >= 3 and days <7:

cost = days*40-20

elif days <3:

cost = days*40

return cost
