I am having issues finishing my week 4 programing assignment can someone help me out

When i submit the assignment is goes under compilation error in grader but it is working fine when i am using it

There are a couple of things to check here. One easy experiment to run is:

  1. Kernel → Restart and Clear Output
  2. Save
  3. Submit

And see if that helps. The point is that the grader doesn’t need to see the output of your functions in the notebook: it only needs to call your functions. But sometimes the output can be pretty voluminous and may cause syntax issues.

If that doesn’t help, then please show us a screen shot of what it says under “Show grader output”. That doesn’t always help, but sometimes there’s a clue there.

The high level point is that just passing the test cases in the notebook is never a guarantee that you’ll pass the grader. There are lots of ways you can write the code that are not “general”: e.g. referencing global variables from the local scope of your functions instead of the parameters that are being passed in.
