How do I use if / else correctly?

I think this looks exactly how I was taught but it is giving me an error message: Bummer! 'admitted'is not false... What am I doing wrong?

admitted = None
if age >= 13:
    admitted = "true"
    admitted = "false"

Delete the quotation marks and uppercase the first letter of the boolean.

admitted = None
if age >= 13:
    admitted = True
    admitted = False
