Stuck at Printing Variables Exercise


#1





I expected to pass this exercise with a simple string and print command; which was what this is all about. My code is below, and do tell where I messed up :slight_smile:


the_machine_goes= "Ping!"
print "the_machine_goes"


#2

There are two strings in your code, which one is asked for?
Does your first line have any effect currently?


#3

Hi there ionatan,

On the screen on the right side it shows:

the_machine_goes
None

Error message is as such: Oops, try again. Did you remember to print out "Ping!"?

the first line has no effect


#4
  • You've got instructions telling you to print the_machine_goes
  • You have a variable named the_machine_goes that refers to "Ping!"
  • You have an error message that's saying that the output should be Ping!
  • You have an unused line of code

There's quite a lot there that says what you need to do

Along with that you've also got a title that describes the exercise and some text to go with it which further says what to do.

I could say a fourth time what to do right, but what you really should be doing is having a look at what information you already have.


#5

I'm well aware of the information I was given; I'm still stuck however, mind shedding a little light?


#6

Put a blue ball in box number 5
then give me the ball that is in box 5

What colour is the ball that you'll be giving me on following those two instructions?


Assign "Ping!" to the variable the_machine_goes
Print the value that the_machine_goes refers to

What is going to be printed on following those two instructions?


If I store my name in a variable named name
How can you then print my name?


result = 3 + 4

On printing the result, 7 should be displayed. How is this done?
It certainly should not print "result", because that is not a number, it's text, and that text is not related to 7 so how was that particular text obtained, that doesn't make sense.


#7

To do this question (which took me a while) you have to do this:
the_machine_goes = "Ping!"
print the_machine_goes
Hope this helps :slight_smile:
