I am having issues with my class assignment. My simple program is having a user input car speed, time traveled and tank capacity. However, when I go to calculate distance traveled (distance = input_speed * input_time) and then calculate MPG (mpg = distance / input_capacity), I am getting a divide by zero error. All of my previous inputs are listed as input_capacity = int(input("Input capacity: ")), but it is obviously not treating the number as an integer or a real number (in the case of using float for time). Can someone help me identify what I might be doing wrong or where I might need to tell the program to treat the input as a number?

Sample input and my calculation formulas below:

Bah, found my own error. I wasn't calling the functions at the end/beginning, I was calling the results.

Called the correct variable and now it works fine.

Sample input and my calculation formulas below:

def capacity_prompt(): input_capacity = 0 input_capacity = int(input("Enter the number of gallons or liters used: ")) return input_capacity def calculate_distance(input_speed, input_time): result_distance = 0 result_distance = input_speed * input_time return result_distance def calculate_mpg(result_distance, input_capacity): result_mpg = 0 result_mpg = result_distance / input_capacity return result_mpg

Bah, found my own error. I wasn't calling the functions at the end/beginning, I was calling the results.

Called the correct variable and now it works fine.
