Int and Str error in Python
DavidSafro (19)

Hello there,
So I was just messing around on, when I suddenly remembered how much I hate doing quadratic equations in school. They're just so long and annoying... anyway since all the good calculators are blocked, I decided to make my own, but ran into an unexpected problem. Whenever I tried to find the first root, it gave me an error saying int or str type not usable for exponent? What's going on?

ur repl is either private or inaccessible.

This is a common error, make sure when you take the input it looks like this:

val = int(input("value: "))

where val is like the variable you would assign it to.
