you cant edit your post or i just cant find it

Write "CODE=python" enclosed in square brackets then paste your code from your editor and end it with "/CODE" also in square brackets.
Note, all are without Quotes

Here we go:

``````def main():
books = getBooks
points = getPoints
printPoints

def getBooks():
books = input("enter the books purchased")
return books

def getPoints(books):
if books <= 0:
points = 0
elif books <= 1:
points = 5
elif books <= 2:
points = 15
elif books <= 3:
points = 30
elif books <= 4:
points =60
return points

def printPoints(books,points):
print ("you bought ,books, you now have ,points,")

main()``````

Okay here is a version with a lot of things fixed:

``````def main():
books = getBooks()  #Remember those () otherwise the functions are not called
points = getPoints(books) #again
printPoints(books, points)

def getBooks():
books = input("enter the books purchased")
return books

def getPoints(books):
if books <= 0:
points = 0
elif books <= 1:
points = 5
elif books <= 2:
points = 15
elif books <= 3:
points = 30
elif books <= 4:
points =60
return points

def printPoints(books,points):
print ("you bought" ,books, "you now have ",points) #Remeber to split up the string

main()``````
