I tried this:

spam = 10

but this keeps on showing me error ‘to create a variable called my_varaible’
where am I going wrong? Should I write anything else? Can you please help?
thank you

If you’re creating a variable called my_variable, then it would look something like this:

my_variable = //whatever it is supposed to equal

Totally agree with @jibblyj, the name of your variable needs to be my_variable to pass the exercise, your variable is currently named/called spam


That’s the first time that’s happened :wink:

I wrote a few words about this, hope helps you, please follow the link below

Oops, try again. Did you declare a variable called board?
