Sorry, but in fact you did *not* run this program as you claim. It's
full of syntax errors.  Any attempt to run it will display syntax errors
immediately, and never actually run.   So please tell us what really
happened.

But even without an accurate description of what you did, I can say this:

Lines like
1 = float(...)
don't make sense.  It's as if you are trying to change the value of the
number one, but that's nonsense.

And lines like
print('Your Final Result is:', 5 * 6)
had better print out 30 (since that is what 5 times 6 is) but that's
clearly not what you intended.
