CodeAcademy Python Tip Calculator


To see output you should use function that prints to the output, for
example print(). You also do not calculate correctly the tax and tip, it is
percentage from the meal cost, so the tax to be added to the total meal
cost is meal * tax / 100.

meal = 44.50
tax = 6.75
tip = 15.0

tax_amount = meal * tax / 100
tip_amount = meal * tip / 100

print('Meal total: %.2f' % (meal + tax_amount + tip_amount))

If I remember correctly, you receive the above values as input to your
script. Use the input() and float() functions to accept value as input and
convert it to float.
