Am I suppose to write the code beside the existing code or under it?

do I write the new code under the error sense i can't delete any codes?


print("Let's do some math!") print("lets_do_some_math!)
print(5 + "a")print(5 + 5)

print("Thanks for playing along!')  print("thanks_for_playing_along!")

You can, and should, edit the code provided to fix it. You may also need to add some additional code, but based on what you are adding it might go before or after the existing line(s).

But you will never add code beside existing code, that would cause a syntax error.
