# W2_A1_Optional exercise_AssertionError: Not all tests were passed for softmax

Can’t find the issue here. i set x_exp=exp(x) and divided s=x_exp/x_sum the output shows wrong.

## Output: softmax(x) = [[5.06442745e+02 4.61816006e-01 9.27582244e+00 6.25000000e-02 6.25000000e-02] [9.13860965e+01 1.23677633e+01 8.33333333e-02 8.33333333e-02 8.33333333e-02]] Error: Wrong output 2 Tests passed 1 Tests failed

AssertionError: Not all tests were passed for softmax. Check your equations and avoid using global variables inside the function.

Notice that several your values are quite large, e.g. 5.06 * 10^2 and 9.1 * 10. The point of `softmax` is that all the values are between 0 and 1 and they add up to 1 for each “sample”, right? That is achieved by dividing the values by the sum of the values.

Please have another look at the formula and compare that to your code.

Thank you so much. I got it right.

@paulinpaloalto always looks at the errors and gives precisely instructions.
