Challenge Task 1 of 2 "Conditional Value" ...make an if condition that sets admitted to True if age is 13 or more
I don't know where to start. Please help, this is the trickiest task I've come in contact with in Python Basics, I'm embarrassed cause I feel like this is probably such an easy fix.
admitted = None
admitted = None
Wes, In this challenge we accept that there is a variable named age and all you need to do is check the age. if it is greater than 13 admitted will be True
admitted = None if age > 13: admitted = True
There's no reason to be embarrassed. Honestly, some things will come easier than others when you're learning a new language, no matter if it's code or otherwise. Smile, take a breath, walk away for a short time, then come back and dig in. Sometimes the brain just needs a few seconds to recalibrate itself, it's no biggie.
Now, as for your challenge here, it actually is a relatively simple solution, but don't let that discourage you. What the challenge wants is for you to check if age is greater than or equal to 13 and, if it is, it wants you to set
admitted equal to
True. The basic structure of an if statement is
if some_some_condition_we_are_checking: # do something
This was covered in the previous video(s) a bit, but here is a quick example of it. If you still need a bit of help after taking a peek at that link and reading what I've said so far, feel free to say something and I'll try to explain any points you're having issue with :)
