Hi Yf, The challenge was to find the errors within the code. If you look closely you will see that line 4 you are trying to add an object of type integer to an object of type string, this is an operation python cannot perform. You must change the 5 to a string representation. Finally the last line has two types of quotation marks ' & " in use together. Python recognizes both of these but they need to be used in their pairs eg. "..........." or '..............'

python
print("Hello")
print("name")

print("Let's do some math!")
print("5" + "a")

print("Thanks for playing along!")

Second solution can be...

name = "MyAwesomeName"
print("Hello")
print(name)

print("Let's do some math!")
print(str(5) + "a")

print("Thanks for playing along!")
