# Variable in Math

#1

I'm getting an error when I try to name my variable. I have:

variable = count_to
Print count_to

it says that the variable "count_to" is not defined in line 2

I'm not super familiar with python, obviously, but I'm sure this is a simple fix.

Please include a link to the exercise so that we can then move it to the right forum category.

#3

To define a variable, write the name on the left side of the equals sign, and assign it a value on the right hand side.

``count_to = value or expression``

#4

it is still returning that what is on the right hand side of the "=" sign is not defined.
in the new case:
count_to = variable_name
print count_to

"variable_name" is not defined

#5

`variable_name` is not defined means it has no value. What do the instructions ask us to do?

``count_to = 3 + 4``

That should be all you need for this exercise.

#6

I'm having a similar problem and am unsure of what to do. I've tried out everything suggested by those who have responded, but continue to get an error message. What's wrong?

#7

I have figured out what it is asking of us to do.

I wrote
variable_name = 76 + 36
count_to = 76 + 36
print count_to

So what the actual instructions on the right are telling you is that in order to perform an addition/any function, you must set the variable (in this case count_to) equal to the thing you want calculated. The words describing each function are variables themselves. The word "addition" used is no different than an X, Y, or Count_to.

For example, if you want to find what 3 times 5 is, then you input:
X = 3 * 5
