SyntaxError: positional argument follows keyword argument in Python

Dung Do Tien May 01 2022 146

Hello Guys, I'm a student and start to learn Python last month. I want to create a small function to help calculate the grade point average of students. like this:

 def avg_point(math, physics, chemistry):
    return (math+physics+chemistry) / 3

m1 = int(input("enter math point: "))
m2 = int(input("enter physics point: "))
m3 = int(input("enter chemistry point: "))

result = avg_point(m1, physics = m2, m3)
print("your grade point average is ", result)

But when running the code above I got an exception SyntaxError: positional argument follows keyword argument

 File "<string>", line 9
SyntaxError: positional argument follows keyword argument

I'm using Python 3.9 and Windows 11.

Thanks in advance.

    You can use param name to help assign value but it has to be from right to left, not left to right. For example:

     result = avg_point(m1, m2, chemistry = m3)
    #OR
    result = avg_point(m1, physics = m2, chemistry = m3)
    #OR
    result = avg_point(math = m1, physics = m2, chemistry = m3)

    I hope this answer is useful for you.
