First let me say that I'm a complete and utter newb to programming, so your answers will have to be very basic. I've decided to learn python. So I'm doing all the free exorcises over at code academy.

But no, as you can see, it wanted this:
How could you add the cost of 2 meals together, and ever get the right answer? The correct answer is clearly saying "meal + meal". And meal is clearly defined in the pic, so they're adding the cost of a whole other meal. I don't get it.
