Hi

what is the error?

n = [1, 3, 5]

# Do your multiplication here

n[1] = n[1] * 5

print n[1]

Error message: did u accidentally remove print statement that was on line 4.

1.On line 3, multiply the second element of the n list by 5

2.Overwrite the second element with that result.

3.Make sure to **print the list** when you are done!

n = [1, 3, 5]

n[1] = n[1] * 5

print n

this is the answer!!

I liked your answer for this. I got the right answer too. I just don't understand why. In my mind I was thinking n[1] * 5

print n

It has been a while since I've started back studying Python on codecademy. Can you explain what is happening here with the n[1]=n[1]*5?

Thanks!!

If you do n[1] * 5 you multiply 3 with 5 nothing more nothing less.

But if you do n[1]=n[1]*5? you multiply 3 with 5 and overwrite the current number of n[1].

-> n[1] equals n[1]*5

this one is better:-

n = [1, 3, 5]

"""here we multiply the 2nd (index no. 1) element by 5 and overwriting it to the original list"""

n[1]=n[1]*5

print n
