I need help on 11/16!


#1

I am following the instructions and this is what I am writing : the_machine_goes = "Ping!"
I press save and submit code and this is what it says : ' Oops, try again. Did you remember to print out "Ping!"? '
I would appreciate it if you could help.
Thanks

@xx5aeedxx,
Maybe you should add aline of code,

print( the_machine_goes )

@leonhard_wettengmx_n

I tried your suggestion and this is what is says : 'Oops, try again. Did you create a variable called the_machine_goes?' Do you have any more suggestions, if not thank you for taking your time out to help me :slightly_smiling:

@xx5aeedxx,

Present the full code you were using....


#5

This is it :
print(the_machine_goes)
the_machine_goes = "Ping!"

Still doesn't work

Thank you Leo sooooo much! I understood what you was trying to say, and I tried it. This is what I wrote : the_machine_goes = "Ping!"
print(the_machine_goes);
And I got it right.... Thank you so much. :joy:

@xx5aeedxx,

You will have to =declare= the variable the_machine_goes
BEFORE
you can use it in a print statement
like

the_machine_goes = "Ping!"
print(the_machine_goes)
