The language used is Python and the question asks - Write a program that inputs the length of two pieces of fabric in feet and inches (as whole numbers) and prints the total.
Enter the Feet for the first piece of fabric: 3
Enter the Inches for the first piece of fabric: 11
Enter the Feet for the second piece of fabric: 2
Enter the Inches for the second piece of fabric: 5
Feet: 6 Inches: 4
So far I have this:
x=float(input("Enter the Feet for the first piece of fabric:"))
y=float (input("Enter the Inches for the first piece of fabric:"))
j=float (input("Enter the Feet for the second piece of fabric:"))
k=float (input("Enter the Inches for the second piece of fabric:"))
print ("Total: "+str((x+j%(k+y))
And it just ain't working
Can someone help?
I can see why you were originally getting an error. The amount of beginning parenthesis you have in the final
Your logic for the program is incorrect. I'm laying this out in a format that should be easier to understand. I would personally change
x,y,j,k to variables that make more sense to what they are such as
inches2. And that is what I did in my example for easier understanding.
Please review the comments in the code below to understand why I added what I did:
import math feet1=float(input("Enter the Feet for the first piece of fabric: ")) inches1=float(input("Enter the Inches for the first piece of fabric: ")) feet2=float(input("Enter the Feet for the second piece of fabric: ")) inches2=float(input("Enter the Inches for the second piece of fabric: ")) #Get the initial total amount of feet initialFeet = feet1 + feet2 #Get the initial total amount of inches initialInches = inches1 + inches2 #Get the remaining inches which is a modulus of 12 (12 inches in 1 foot) remainingInches = initialInches % 12 #Get the addiitonal feet to add from the total initial inches #This total has to be divided by 12 and then have a floor done on it which will remove any decimal values additionalFeet = math.floor(initialInches / 12) #The total feet will be the initial feet (feet1 and feet2) plus the additional calculated feet totalFeet = initialFeet + additionalFeet print ("Total: Feet: " + str(totalFeet) + " Inches: " + str(remainingInches))

If you tell us
1) what error are you getting
2) send a link to a repl to make it easier to help
3) describe your problem (something more specific than "And it just ain't working")
we could probably help better
Problem 1: You're missing two closing parentheses after your
Problem 2: What you're printing isn't quite right. After inputting the values, you should do something like this:
feet = x + j inches = y + k # If we have 12 or more inches, add the # appropriate number of feet feet += inches // 12 # Divide inches by 12, get the remainder, # and make that the value of 'inches' inches = inches % 12 print('Feet:', feet, 'Inches:', inches)
Although I did answer this question because it wasn't too confusing, next time onwards you should definitely (at least) do the things @ash15khng has mentioned.
