Where is my mistake?

Hi Maho

The error is in the for statement
for i in (len(values1)):
len(values1) is not iterable, it is just an integer.
So, it should have been range(len(values1)).

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

Thank you, I have already read those guidelines.
I promise you that I will act on those guidelines, but guideline 3 is a little difficult to apply and I think screenshots like the one above help more.

Thanks for the clarification.

Hi @Maho,

Good to know that you have read those guidelines.

I agree that screenshots like above will help to ask the question easily and quickly.

  • But when we try to write down a question and try to formulate what we need to ask, we think more about the problem and sometimes we end up finding a solution all by ourselves in that process.
    Probably that is why guideline #1 is Format all code using Markdown - no screenshots.

I understand from my experience that it is easier to ask question here and get an answer when we are stuck. But there is a sense of accomplishment when we search on our own for the solution on google or stackoverflow and find a solution all by ourselves. When we as a beginner do that, it boost our confidence tremendously.
For example, in this problem, if you wanted to troubleshoot by yourself, you could copy and paste the error code " β€˜int’ object is not iterable" on google and do a search.

The first result I got is here


You will find a similar issue there as well. And the solution given is also in the similar lines.

Once you do this, soon you will get a hang of troubleshooting such issues on your own and get better at it. This will help you a lot in learning things quickly. I hope this helps.

How should I know whether the variable is iterable or not?
