    Incredibly beginner question


    Hi I just started programming in Python today, and am trying to tackle this incredibly simple problem but i'm stumped.

    Write a program that prompts the user to enter two positive integers, and then prints their sum, product and quotient (with remainder.

    if someone could post their line of code so I could read it and figure out what I'm doing with mine I would appreciate it!

    Please post you code of what you have done.
    Then we will help you to find what you miss or is incorrect.

    When you post the code, it should be placed inside code tags to keep the code format:
    [code ] [ /code] (without space)

    Code:
    x=raw_input("Type a number: ")
    y=raw_input("Type another number: 2")
    z=x+y
    print z

    Code:
    print("beginner's Godly calculator")
    
    # raw_input returns string data
    x=raw_input("Type a number: ")
    
    intx = int(x)  # convert to integer
    
    y=raw_input("Type another number: ")
    inty = int(y)
    
    print x,'+',y,'equals',intx+inty          # add the integers
    
    if not inty:
        print('division yields infinity in some direction') # could include a sign test
    else:
        (quotient,remainder,) = divmod(intx,inty)  # divide using the integers
        print x,'/',y,'equals',quotient,'with remainder',remainder
