Hi I'm not sure I totally understand the challenge. for setting a variable to true or false using boolean logic.
If admitted has been assigned to false (i.e. none), How do I reassign it to become true. I had attempted to reassign to age which worked but when I wanted to include the else statement, the first code became invalid. Would appreciate any insight on this.
admitted = None if age>=13: admitted =bool(1) else admitted = bool(0)
