# Problem With Indexes - Week 1 Assigment 1 Exc 3

Hi guys,
can You check my code? I’m getting the following error:

IndexError                                Traceback (most recent call last)

IndexError: index 3 is out of bounds for axis 1 with size 3

My code is:

{moderator edit - solution code removed}

I believe my implementation of inner loops is correct, as well as all the slicing, but somehow this produces an error, I was not able to track it yest.

Also, the shapes and *_start, *_end values are as follow throughout the loop until the error occurs:

a_prev_pad.shape, vert_start,vert_end, horiz_start, horiz_end, a_slice_prev.shape, weights.shape, biases.shape

IndexError: index 3 is out of bounds for axis 1 with size 3

I agree that your loop logic and the handling of stride and all that looks correct. Note that the index values shown in the last step for the w dimension should be valid. Are you sure that your Z value is the correct shape? Here’s what I have for that test case:

Shape Z = (2, 3, 4, 8)

Yes, shape of Z is always (2, 3, 4, 8). Until the final case, where horiz_start, horiz_end are 6, 9. This is the case where loop breaks.

Okay, Im not sure what happened but I just rewrote the code and it worked…

Interesting. Well, one possible theory is that you had not re-executed the function after fixing it. Just typing new code and then calling the function again doesn’t do anything: it just runs the old code. You have to click “Shift-Enter” on the actual function cell to activate the changed code. Or do something like “Kernel → Restart and Clear Output” followed by “Cell → Run All”.
