``````print 'Hello please enter number of Dollar coins.'
Dollarcoins_value=(1.00)
strDollarcoins=raw_input()

print 'Please enter number of Half Dollars.'
HalfDollars_value=(0.50)
strHalfDollars=raw_input()

print 'Please enter number of Quarters.'
Quarters_value=(0.25)
strQuarters=raw_input()

print 'Please enter number of Dimes.'
Dimes_value=(0.10)
strDimes=raw_input()

print 'Please enter number of Nickels.'
Nickels_value=(0.05)
strNickels=raw_input()

print 'Please enter number of Pennies.'
Pennies_value=(0.01)

``````amount = 0.0
for kind, value in (
('Dollar coins', 1.00),
('Quarters', 0.25),
('Dimes', 0.10),
('Nickels', 0.05),
('Pennies', 0.01)
):
amount += int(raw_input('Please enter number of %s: ' % kind )) * value

print ("You have \$%.2f." % amount)``````

Thank you so much. Do you know what was wrong with my code?

Can't tell if your code is wrong, since your last line is incomplete.
The above solution put everything inside a loop to make it more elegant.
Your code should still work if you remember to cast the input you get using
raw_input() with int() in your last line.
