# pset6 greedy - python decimal points driving me crazy!

Well, I thought I'd ported the code from c pretty quickly and easily this time, but there is a problem I've been trying to work on for the best part of a week and I don't understand it....and I've tried everything I can find by searching...

I've asked for the 'change' as a float as suggested by the walkthrough (and it has to be anyway, I thought? because it needs to have to 2 dec places...) then I've tried to round it, to get it to no decimal places for the calculations. That didn't work so I changed the input to another var because a debugger I'm using said something about not being able to do calculations using the input function...nada! Then I tried to declare a var as an int and then change the input to that var so that it would be no dec places. That didn't work. So then I added a line to 'cast' the var (that's supposed to be an int to start with - I read that "= 0" makes it an int and '= x.0 makes it a float??!). Anyway, none of it works - I still end up with 2 dec points in the calculations. So then I 'cast' all the vars to ints just to make sure it wasn't coming from anywhere else...! Even that didn't work and I am at a loss...why isn't the 'money' var coming out with no dec points?? I don't feel I can move on and come back to it because without understanding why this is happening I feel I don't understand the basics of python... Any advice gratefully received...thank you!
