# [Solved] unsupported operand type(s) for *: ‘float’ and ‘Decimal’

Hello Guys, How are you all? Hope You all Are Fine. Today I get the following error unsupported operand type(s) for *: ‘float’ and ‘Decimal’ in python. So Here I am Explain to you all the possible solutions here.

## How unsupported operand type(s) for *: ‘float’ and ‘Decimal’ Error Occurs?

Today I get the following error unsupported operand type(s) for *: ‘float’ and ‘Decimal’ in python.

## How To Solve unsupported operand type(s) for *: ‘float’ and ‘Decimal’ Error ?

1. How To Solve unsupported operand type(s) for *: 'float' and 'Decimal' Error ?

To Solve unsupported operand type(s) for *: 'float' and 'Decimal' Error It seems like `self.VAT` is of `decimal.Decimal` type and `self.amount` is a `float`, thing that you can't do.

2. unsupported operand type(s) for *: 'float' and 'Decimal'

To Solve unsupported operand type(s) for *: 'float' and 'Decimal' Error It seems like `self.VAT` is of `decimal.Decimal` type and `self.amount` is a `float`, thing that you can't do.

## Solution 1

It seems like `self.VAT` is of `decimal.Decimal` type and `self.amount` is a `float`, thing that you can’t do.

Try `decimal.Decimal(self.amount) * self.VAT` instead.

## Solution 2

Your issue is, as the error says, that you’re trying to multiply a `Decimal` by a `float`

The simplest solution is to rewrite any reference to `amount` declaring it as a Decimal object:

`self.amount = decimal.Decimal(float(amount))`

and in `initialize`:

`self.amount = decimal.Decimal('0.0')`

Another option would be to declare Decimals in your final line:

`return (decimal.Decimal(float(self.amount)) * self.VAT).quantize(decimal.Decimal(float(self.amount)), rounding=decimal.ROUND_UP)`

…but that seems messier.
