Problem with printing variables in Python


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.

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!"""

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 <module>
NameError: name 'the_maching_goes' is not defined


Hmm... Something doesn't look quite right.
