Hey Randall,

Python has an easy syntax for conditional statements.

In your instance, you'll want to set admitted to True if age is greater than or equal (>=) than 13.

if age >= 13:
    admitted = True

Notice how unlike other programming languages, we don't have to wrap our argument in parentheses. It is also important to note the use of a colon and the indent on line two.

You'll use this same structure when setting your else condition.

if age >= 13:
    admitted = True
   // Set admitted to False here
