age = age == Are different. Try ==

1 Answer

Two mistakes:

  • You are using the = operator to check equality. Python thinks that you are trying to make a variable. You need to use == to check equality so that Python understands that you aren't making a variable.
  • The last two lines are indented too far. Python thinks that there's a else clause inside the if clause. You need to de-dent the line a little more.

thank you for the information! i figured out the problem had to many indentations. and i guess i had to skip a line before writing the if block
