# [Tutor] wxPython? (fwd)

```Hi Karshi,

Let me forward this to the rest of Tutor.  I hate saying this, but I
can't reproduce the wackiness.

The only thing I can think that of that can trigger this behavior is if
divide() itself was defined as:

###
def divide(x,y):
return x
###

But then, I might not be considering some strange side effect.  Can you
check to see if this is what's happening?  Also, what version of Python
are you using?

Hi Danny,
Can you tell me why I am getting the strange results here:

from Numeric import *

def divide(x,y):
return x/y

for y in range(-10,10,1):
x=2
try:
print divide(x,y), y

except ZeroDivisionError:
print "You are trying to divide by zero"

----------------

-1 -10
-1 -9
-1 -8
-1 -7
-1 -6
-1 -5
-1 -4
-1 -3
-1 -2
-2 -1
You are trying to divide by zero
2 1
1 2
0 3
0 4
0 5
0 6
0 7
0 8
0 9
------------------------------
Why x/y gives wrong results?
