Python Python Basics Meet Python Create a Variable

help I don't know how to creat variables


1 Answer

Hi Eren Teen,

At about the 4 minute mark in the video prior to the Code Challenge, Craig goes over creating and assigning variables. Essentially, you give a name to the variable you are creating, such as favorite_color. And then using the "=" operator, you can assign a value to the variable. It can be a number or string.

As a quick example, I will create the variable name and assign my name to it:

name = "Clara"

Hope that helps!
