Python Comparison Challenge

Hello can someone tell me what's wrong with this syntax?

name = input("Please enter your name: ")  
number = int(input("Please enter a number: "))  
is_fizz = number % 3 == 0

if is_fizz   
    print("is a Fizz number")

I tried out is fizz in the interactive python session and it returned true.

You're very close. There is a missing colon on the if statement.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!

Ooooh duh me! Haha thanks man!

Transitioning from Ruby where they don't use colons there haha.

Yes, the colon is the only part that is missing!
