Learn Python: Functions 8.2 "Better Wording is Needed"


#1

In this exercise on returns @8.2 it says

Outside of the function, call calculate_age with values 2018 ( current_year ) and 1993 ( birth_year ) and save the value to a variable called my_age .

The wording here is confusing. What it should say, instead, is “…call ‘calculate_age’ with values…and set it equal to a variable called ‘my_age’”

The solution indicates that my_age is equal to the newly calculated age, but the word “save the value” and “set the value equal to” are not equivalent expressions.
