# I am trying to write a piece of code as an assignment that terminates by a predefined input

The code I am trying to write would continuously loop and terminates after a predefined input from the user. It would also do some calculations and print at the end before starting the over. The code that I have written so far below loops, but it does not terminate with the predefined user input. Please help – DC.20212833

``````salesp_num = ' '
while salesp_num != 00000:

salesp_num  = input("Please enter the salesperson's number or enter 00000 to exit:\n")

if len(salesp_num) != 5:
print("The salesperson's number must be 5 digits\n")

else:
salesp_num = int(salesp_num)

salesamount = float(input("Enter the sales amount:\n"))
Class = int(input("What is the class of the sales person? 1, 2, or 3?\n"))

if Class == 1:
if salesamount <= 1000:
commission = salesamount * 0.06
elif salesamount > 1000 and salesamount < 2000:
commission = salesamount * 0.07
elif salesamount > 2000:
commission = salesamount * 0.1
elif Class ==2:
if salesamount < 1000:
commission = salesamount * 0.04
elif salesamount >= 1000:
commission = salesamount * 0.06
elif Class ==3:
commission = salesamount * 0.045
else:
print("Incorrect class")

print(salesp_num)
print(Class)
print(salesamount)
print(commission)

### >Solution :

You can change it as below. Note, I have used ‘0’ for exit, not ‘00000’

``````salesp_num = ' '

while (salesp_num != '0'):
salesp_num  = input("Please enter the salesperson's number or press '0' to exit:\n")
if salesp_num == '0':
print("Exiting....")
break

if len(salesp_num) != 5:
print("The salesperson's number must be 5 digits\n")

else:
salesp_num = int(salesp_num)

salesamount = float(input("Enter the sales amount:\n"))
Class = int(input("What is the class of the sales person? 1, 2, or 3?\n"))

if Class == 1:
if salesamount <= 1000:
commission = salesamount * 0.06
elif salesamount > 1000 and salesamount < 2000:
commission = salesamount * 0.07
elif salesamount > 2000:
commission = salesamount * 0.1
elif Class ==2:
if salesamount < 1000:
commission = salesamount * 0.04
elif salesamount >= 1000:
commission = salesamount * 0.06
elif Class ==3:
commission = salesamount * 0.045
else:
print("Incorrect class")

print(salesp_num)
print(Class)
print(salesamount)
print(commission)
