I'm new to this forum and I am also new to Python and coding in general. While I've gotten through basic tutorials on most general topics of Python such as series, dictionary, parameters, loops, and so forth I am still very much a newbie (as you will see in this program I attempted)
My boss at work wanted me to solve a simple math problem in order to help her create a new budget based on a recent grant our organization received. I eventually just did it the basic math way, however I wanted to test out my Python abilities so I tried to make a program to solve it.
Can someone please help me figure out how to get this code to work?
##Solve situation when: one fixed, one variable, one total of fixed + variable ##The OtherSub must be 75% of Total, the Contribution must stay fixed ##The Total can increase but not decrease Contribution = input('Enter the fixed amount: ') Other = input('Enter the other variable amount: ') Total = Contribution + Other ##Putting a = 3. allows for .75 whereas simply 3/4 would give 0 a = 3. b = 4 c = a / b While Other / Total <= c: print Other print Other / Total OtherSub + 1 If OtherSub / Total == c: print 'The new Other Subtotal is ' + Other
