Craig wrote: first_name=11 Before that he wrote: first_name="Ada" Why is it that Ada had quotes around it and not 11?

Is there a difference between first_name="11" and first_name=11?

We put "" around whatever that is String. first_name = "Ada". Number/Integer doesn't need "".

Thanks! I appreciate your reply.
