``````name = raw_input('Hello what is your name?')
print "Hello %s, nice name!, my name is botpython and im gonna calculate your approximate height" %(name, )
sex = raw_input("Are you boy or girl?")

num1 = raw_input("What is your father's height in centimeters?")
num2 = raw_input("What is your mother's height in centimeters?")
if sex is "boy":
print "%s, your approximate height is %s centimeters" % (name, [{num1+num2+13}/2])
elif sex is "girl":
print '%s, your approximate height is %s centimeters' % (name, [{num1+num2-13}/2])``````

Try to use ( ) instead of [ ] and { }

#3

Do you get any error message along with that code? If yes, what does it say?

Is the code okay if you write "boy"?

Simple problem. Do you know the function of an 'is' operator in Python?

You want to check that if the variable `sex` is equal to "boy". So wouldn't you rather do?

``if sex == "boy":``

Same goes for the elif. Also, you may want to average the two numbers somewhere else first, and then simply print that variable. It would seem easier to do that, wouldn't it?
