Im beginning to worry I wont be able to learn to code. Im finding stuff like the above difficult.


#6

I'm in the same spot, I think simple logical like these may overpass me and I won't be able to learn coding

Don't worry if you don't get this right now! Everyone here will get it with time, practice, and (most importantly) patience. Let's get some things out of the way here:

def greater_less_equal_5(answer):
    if ______ > 5:
        return 1
    elif ______ answer < 5:          
        return -1
    else:
        return 0
        
print greater_less_equal_5(4)
print greater_less_equal_5(5)
print greater_less_equal_5(6)

First thing, remember the importance of the indents. If there is a : (colon), make sure that it follows with an indent.

Second thing, when you are def greater_less_equal(answer), the argument () here is (answer). So when using the if: and elif: statement, it's basically asking "if" the argument (remember that it's answer here) is > 5, then it will return a 1. Otherwise, it will return a -1 or 0, depending on what (answer) is given.

In order to test the solution, the print function already gives you a number to use for the (answer) argument. The numbers they give are: (4), (5), (6). I hope this helps!
