Hey, I keep getting an error for my program and I just can't figure it out.

It's for the table part

This program is meant to find the time and avarage times for an experiment

When i don't use a function its fine, but when i do it isnt.

the part which doesnt work is

and the error is

**What I have tried:**

I've tried to change the data types but I just cant get it to run

Python

Copy Code

the part which doesnt work is

I've tried to change the data types but I just cant get it to run
