Ok, let's make a bit of order here.
As the exercise suggest, "Printing variables" that's the exact goal that you have to reach there.
First of all declaring a variable:
the_machine_goes = #We've declared the variable this way.
Now it say to ASSIGN to the variable the string value "Ping!", You don't have to add it in your print as you did
in line 6: print "the_machine_goes_ping, but exactly as you did in line 5!
the_machine_goes = "Ping!" #We've assigned the string value "Ping!" to the variable
Lastly it ask to print the variable, whenever you want to print out a variable remember to never put it between ' ' or " ", python treat those as STRINGS, to pring a string stored in your variable you do:
and that's it!
I hope this is clearly enough, whether you need any help please feel free to ask again whenever you want! and let me know if everything is clear @qutayba_619hotmail_c @lucasmiguins
