Problem with printing variables in Python


#1

<PLEASE USE THE FOLLOWING TEMPLATE TO HELP YOU CREATE A GREAT POST!>

<Below this line, add a link to the EXACT exercise that you are stuck at. The query string (? and beyond) may be truncated.>
Can anybody please help me on this Python exercise? The exercise that I am stuck on is Unit 2’s String and Console Category. The exact exercise I’m stuck on is number 11. Printing variables.

<In what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>
The instructions they gave you was:

“”“Assign the string “Ping!” to
the variable the_machine_goes on
line 5, then print it out on line 6!”""
<What do you expect to happen instead?>

```python

The code I put in is:

the_machine_goes = “Ping!”
print the_maching_goes

The response they give is:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “python”, line 6, in
NameError: name ‘the_maching_goes’ is not defined
Thanks!
