 Calculating what year it is when you are 100 years old
I'm trying to figure out how to get the program to calculate what year it is when the user is 100 years old.

The error that it gives me is: Traceback (most recent call last): TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for -: 'int' and 'str'

[code] print("The date is as follows:")
    import datetime
    now =
    print (now.year, now.month,

    name = input("Hi. Please enter your name: ")

    print("Hello", name)
    age = input("Please enter your age: ")
    print("You are going to be age 100 on the year", (now.year-age+100))[/code]
input returns string, you have to convert it to integer before calculation

Test everything in a Python shell (iPython, Azure Notebook, etc.)
  • Someone gave you an advice you liked? Test it - maybe the advice was actually bad.
  • Someone gave you an advice you think is bad? Test it before arguing - maybe it was good.
  • You posted a claim that something you did not test works? Be prepared to eat your hat.
