Do I need to split the tuple?

I stuck on this part of the code challenge.

The syntax comes up with whats expected and what is shown, but I don't know if I have to split the tuple to give the player 1 score and the player 2 score.


from game import Game

class GameScore(Game):
    def __str__(self):
        return 'Player 1: {}, Player 2: {}'.format(self.score, self.score)

Hi Jonathan,

You are really close. You will need to pull out the each value separately in the self.score tuple.

You can do this one of two ways. Either access each score value by index, eg. self.score[0], self.score[1], or you could unpack it using the * operator.

Also, you will need to recheck your returned string. It must be exactly as the challenge asks, punctuation and all.

Good luck.

You almost have it.

  1. After player 1, you have a , where it should be a ;

  2. You can get the tuple values using self.score[0] and self.score[1]

return 'Player 1: {}; Player 2: {}'.format(self.score[0], self.score[1])
