Help with strings. entered what was stated. code is invalid or directions invalid


#1
  1. On line 1, create a variable named parrot and set it to the string "Norwegian Blue". On line 2, type len(parrot) after the word print, like so: print len(parrot). The output will be the number of letters in "Norwegian Blue"!

code that is written as stated to do so doesn't work.

1 len(parrot) = "Norwegian Blue"
2 lower() len(parrot)
3 upper()
4 str()
5 print len(parrot)

I followed the directions and it doesn't work at all. very bad programming. not line definitiions. they should use the # on EVERY line comment to properly teach this language. very confusing
