In the lesson box, it states:

Put these values in your prices dictionary, in between the {} : py "banana": 4, "apple": 2, "orange": 1.5, "pear": 3

I don’t understand the py in py “banana”: 4. When I try to put that in the code, it throws a syntax error. However, this code appears to work fine, without it, and to pass the lesson:

prices = {
“banana”: 4,
“apple”: 2,
“orange”: 1.5,
“pear”: 3

Am I missing something?

That looks like a tiny bug that has crept into the instructions in some lesson pages. Definitely ignore it.

@alyssavigil, would it be possible for you to refer this to somebody on the dev team to look into? Thanks.
