Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Conditional Value

Can you please help me understand?

I dont think I need the variables but it passed Task 1 when I set admitted = True

admitted = None
admitted = True
admitted = False

if age >= 13:
    admitted == True
    admitted == False

Are you sure the variable admitted should be the same for all three values?

You do not need to set your admitted variables at the top - you're overwriting the None with True, and then the True with False anyway.

Your conditional statement has the correct syntax, but your assignments of admitted == True should be admitted = True. It's an assignment.
