#1

Instructions:
On line 2, fill in the if statement to check if answer is greater than 5.

On line 4, fill in the elif so that the function outputs -1 if answer is less than 5.

Here is my answer. What am I doing wrong?

if 5< 6:
return 1
elif 5 > 3:
return -1
else:
return 0

print greater_less_equal_5(4)
print greater_less_equal_5(5)
print greater_less_equal_5(6)

Do not copy the example in the lesson text (ignore it) and instead follow the instructions. What are you supposed to do with `answer`?

ok, i answered the elif 5 > 3:

return -1
it did not work and stated
It looks like your function output 1 instead of -1 when answer is 3. Make sure you filled in the if and elif statements correctly!

#4

The name of the function should be an indication of what the function is supposed to check. Is `answer` greater than, less than or equal to `5`?

#5

can you give me an example . I ordered a book you suggested which i believe it will help with me understanding better

#6

i cannot figure out was is less than 5. i tried a lot of different numbers. i know once i figure it out, it was so simple. do you have any other suggestions

The values are in the call expressions as arguments, 4, 5, and 6. In the function those values are represented by the parameter, `answer`. That is what to compare to 5.

``````if answer > 5:
