**The error "non-numeric argument to binary operator" usually occurs when you are trying to perform a mathematical operation (such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc.) on a non-numeric data type, like a string or a boolean value.**

**Here are some steps you can follow to fix this error:**

**Identify the line of code where the error is occurring.**This will help you understand which part of your program is causing the issue.**Check the arguments being passed to the function**. Make sure that the left and right arguments are numeric values (e.g. integers or floating-point numbers) and not strings or boolean values.**If the left and right arguments are supposed to be non-numeric, consider converting them to numeric values before performing the mathematical operation**. For example, you can use the`int()`

or`float()`

functions to convert a string to an integer or a floating-point number.**If the left and right arguments are numeric values but the error is still occurring, check to make sure that the function is being called with the correct number of arguments.**Make sure that you are passing the correct number of arguments to the function and that they are in the correct order.**If you are still having trouble, try running the code with some debug statements (e.g.**This can help you understand why the error is occurring and how to fix it.`print()`

statements) to see what the values of the left and right arguments are at the point where the error occurs.

## What Is the Non-numeric Argument to Binary Operator

**The error "non-numeric argument to binary operator" occurs when you are trying to perform a mathematical operation (such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc.) **on a non-numeric data type, like a string or a boolean value. This error typically occurs because the values being passed as arguments to the function or operation are not numeric, or because the function or operation is being called with the wrong number of arguments.

**There are a few common issues that can cause this error:**

**Passing non-numeric arguments to a function or operation:**This can happen if you are trying to perform a mathematical operation on variables that are not numeric, or if you are passing strings or boolean values as arguments to a function or operation that expects numeric values.**Using the wrong data type:**If you are trying to perform a mathematical operation on two variables, make sure that they are both of the same data type. For example, if one variable is an integer and the other is a floating-point number, you will need to convert one of them to the other data type before performing the operation.**Calling a function with the wrong number of arguments:**Make sure that you are passing the correct number of arguments to the function and that they are in the correct order. If you are missing an argument or if you have an extra argument, the function may not be able to perform the operation correctly.**Typo in variable names:**Make sure that you are using the correct variable names. If you have a typo in a variable name, the variable will not be recognized and the operation will fail.
