I write : if guess_row = ship_row guess_col = ship_col print "Congratulations! You sank my battleship!". The error message that i get says : File "python", line 29 if guess_row = ship_row ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax does this mean that using an equal sign is not permitted or is just not one of the correct way of using it?
== not = if you mean equal in Python
if (x == y)
oh thanks i caught my mistake
