Stuck up in an problem


#1

the_machine_goes = "ping!"
print the_machine_goes

Am i doing something wrong?Because i m not getting it.Please help


#2

That is correct, there might be a misspelling or something


#3

I just copy pasted the code here...but it is still showing errors


#4

what error did you get? I put it into the top of my problem that I'm stuck on and it printed ping into the console as it should


#5

Oops, try again. Did you set the_machine_goes equal to the string "Ping!"?


#6

That is not a console error, its just the the lesson being picky, type exactly "Ping!"


#7

i tried that bt still nt getting it.i ll try again later


#8

You need to add " " when you want something printed. So it should be: print "the_machine_goes"


#9

i need help i am have the same problem! the_machine_goes = "Ping!"
print "the_mechine_goes"


#10

I'm stuck too. What the heck...


#11

do a capital P in the ping


#12

The checker throughout the course is very picky about what it wants and doesn't want. Capital letter and " vs ' are some of the things that will annoy you. Make sure it is exactly spelling, punctuation, capitals, quotes are all correct to the example.


#13

there is one lesson where there is a variable and they say this is the answer:
fifth_letter = 'Y'
i typed this:
fifth_letter = 'Y'
please help me!

Hello, guys, I`ve stucked up with this problem too, what should I do ? Pls, help!!


#15

No, that's only when you wan to print directly a string. Variables dont need quotation marks, because you wont get the variable's value, but it's name.


#16

Get rid of the quotation marks
