Changing a variable within an if statment
The question asks me to make admitted true if age is greater than or equal to 13, but admitted is automatically set to None and I am not allowed to change it.
admitted = None if age >= 13: admitted == "true": else: admitted == "false"

To change it you need an assignment. The assignment operator is a single equal sign (=).
A double equal sign (==) is an equality comparison operator.
Also, there's a stray colon at the end of the line with "true".
Python does not use brackets to group piece of code. Indentation is used. Check it out ;)
