1) When checking for truth, there's very very rarely a need to use
"if x is True:".  Instead, just use "if x:"

2) "isinstance(int(answer), int)" will either be True, because the
int() call succeeded and produced an int, or the int() call will raise
an error.  Using it as a condition is baroque, and will never result
in the elif clause being tested.  So I'm not sure how your code is
ever printing the result of the calculation, or printing the
"amend" message.

Are you sure you've tested this code thoroughly?
