i know you have to add \n but ive tried putting it everywhere

`print "The sales amount is \$\n\n", salesAmount`
or
`print "The sales amount is \$", 2*'\n', salesAmount`

``````print(2*'\n')
``````

at line 19 before results.

Or change the line 20

``````print "\n\nThe sales amount is \$", salesAmount
``````

You can aslo use the WYSIWYG approach to format your output ...
