You have some superfluous brackets around 'squares' and '1.3', which
Remove them and you get -
float(squares * float(.15)) * 1.3
Now you can see that you have the brackets in the wrong place - you are
trying to multiply 'squares', which at this stage is still a string, by
You can multiply a string by an integer, but not by a float -
>>> 'abc' * 3
>>> 'abc' * 1.5

TypeError: can't multiply sequence by non-int of type 'float'
You probably meant
float(squares) * float(.15)
or more simply
float(squares) * .15
