Solution :

Please note the range() can only work with integers but the dividing with  / operator will always results in a float value:

e.g.
>>> 450 / 10
45.0
>>> range(450 / 10)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: 'float' object cannot be interpreted as an integer

So please make the value an integer again by following method:

for i in range(int(c / 10)):

or you can use the // floor division operator:

for i in range(c // 10):

Solution:

In:

for i in range(c/10):

You're creating a float as a result - to fix this use the int division operator:

for i in range(c // 10):

range() can only work with integers, but dividing with the / operator always results in a float value:

>>> 450 / 10
45.0
>>> range(450 / 10)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: 'float' object cannot be interpreted as an integer

Make the value an integer again:

for i in range(int(c / 10)):

or use the // floor division operator:

for i in range(c // 10):

As shown below, range only supports integers:

>>> range(15.0)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: range() integer end argument expected, got float.
>>> range(15)
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14]
>>>

However, c/10 is a float because / always returns a float.

Before you put it in range, you need to make c/10 an integer. This can be done by putting it in int:

range(int(c/10))

or by using //, which returns an integer:

range(c//10)
