Sum and input/output

I’m having a little trouble with this:

In the last problem I wrote a shell script that looked like this:

x= int(input(“Enter first number:”))
y= int(input(“Enter second number:”))
print(“Sum of the given two numbers is:”, sum)

In their form I tried this:

The last line reads:

print(“Sum of the first number and the second number is:”, sum)

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks


Is number2 supposed to also be an int?

Yes, and I was not trying that before. I will include that in my future answers. I still haven’t found the exact way they like it, but you thought of something I was not considering. Thanks!

I’m not sure we can access that particular part of your CS course. Can you go back to the beginning of the course and post a link? If we can access it, we’ll try it out. Otherwise you’ll have to keep trying.


Are you enrolled in a college or university program that uses this service to present some of the learning material? Don’t give private information, just a yes or no.

It is on Stepik

but you don’t have to go through the whole module to get to this question.

You need to keep it simple, and as literal as possible…


If your have more problems like this, give a link with your question. The course is locked (as expected) but it still let me compete the problem.

Thanks!I knew it had to be something simple like that because my code was working in their Linux emulator.
