LPTHW Exe26 (The test)


#1

Dear Author & members
Hope you all are doing well
I’m now at exe26 trying to fix the code issues, till now i fixed some of them, but now i’m facing error in line 45 associated with the function of secret_formula and can’t figure out what’s the problem.

PS C:\Users\Mustafa alani\lpthw> python ex26.py
File “ex26.py”, line 45
def secret_formula(started):
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

This is the error i’m getting.
Thanks ahead guys

Hi @Mustafa welcome to the forum!

Please post your whole code. Mostly the error ist not on the line Python points to, often it is a line before or after. When posting code please do it like described here: Ex13.py nothing works right

Kind regards,
Didier

Check the line above, the syntax error might be there.

I’m going to guess that you typed all the code in then tried to run it.

Instead, you need to start over and type in only a little bit of code, then run it. It works better if you do a little, review it, run it, fix it, continue.
