So I was able to understand Unit 14: I've got 99 problems... in Chapter 5: Conditionals and Control Flow. My code for the activity is below:
if answer > 5:
elif answer < 5:
So I've defined a variable greater_less_equal(), where the output will vary based on what the answer is. By the way, what is the thing inside the () called? Is (answer) part of the variable greater_less_equal or what?
I'm super stuck with Activity 15: The Big If. This is the base code they give you:
Make sure that the_flying_circus() returns True
if ________: # Start coding here!
# Don't forget to indent
# the code inside this block!
# Keep going here.
# You'll want to add the else statement, too!
I tried modeling this after activity 14 so I started with
It doesn't work with answer inside the (). So then I tried
if the_flying_circus > 0 and a bunch of different comparators but it doesn't like it either. What is my variable here? Why is it telling me to print right away instead of return and then print at the end? I tried looking this up but I still didn't understand what to do. Can someone please post the solution and then break it down and explain what is going on here? I thought I understood the chapter but I guess not!
