For some of the exercises I have tried to make the programs interactive by asking the user to input a value for a variable instead of hard-coding it in the script. This has worked for me in Python itself, but in the course’s exercises i get a syntax error.
For example, the following works for me in python itself:

weight=input(“How heavy is the package?”,)
How heavy is the package?10

print (weight)

but when I type a statement like this in an exercise for this course I get an error message for the weight=input() statement
Why is this?

Guessing here, but my theory is most likely their sandbox environment is not set up to accept user input the way you can when running it locally.

Is there a way around this? (Sorry for replying late)

I don’t think so - just have to avoid it within lessons.

I‘ve encountered an EOS error, can you tell me what this stands for? Thank you all! :slight_smile:
I tried to make my variable an input.
