SyntaxError: invalid syntax

why is this a syntax error? it worked earlier in the exercise and now suddenly it is a syntax error

is there another way to post my code other than copy/paste so the formatting is preserved?

Did you see my reply about the suggested fix?

you could put it on repl.it or you could just simply use mark up:

To keep the formatting intact

ok great that worked. so my follow-up question is how could i have known it was a problem on the line above? because it told me the problem was on this line. thats why i didnt check above.

Because i am good

Just kidding, because i know the once you start using parentheses you can put code over multiply lines:

```
print get_letter_grade(
get_average(lloyd)
)
```

because this is valid (valid and recommend are two different things), but because you forgot `)`

, python thought you still where busy with calling get_letter_grade.
