Meltdown Mitigation

I need some help understanding why my code doesn’t work.
First off the tasks says:

  • The temperature is less than 800 K.
  • The number of neutrons emitted per second is greater than 500.
  • The product of temperature and neutrons emitted per second is less than 500000.
    My code:
if temperature < 800 and neutrons_emitted > 500 and (temperature*neutrons_emitted) < 500000:
        return true
        return false

Code I got from a right solution

if temperature < 800 and neutrons_emitted > 500:
        return (temperature * neutrons_emitted) < 5e5
    return False

I don’t understand why mine doesn’t work. For my if statement I’m looking at three conditions. If temp < 800, if emitted > 500, and if the sum of them is less than 500,000. What logic am I doing wrong? Why does the right code work and mine fails?

Hi demaiokenneth! I don’t know if you type the code here wrong or not, but for me, it works correctly! No error. Can you show the error message that shows to you?

As @tiagocazali says, you should start by reading the error. And telling us what it is?

But I would ask, is true a thing in Python?

This is what I see if I try and use the word true on my local machine in Python 3…

***** python3
>>> true

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>

NameError: name 'true' is not defined. Did you mean: 'True'?

Ha!!! You must use the word “True” , not “true”. (with T ) capital letter! :wink:
I tested in my computer, but probably fixed automatically the T and F! And I focused in the IF sentence, not in the return! kkk
