Python Python Basics (2015) Python for Beginners Correct errors

How is the answer suppose to look, when I cannot delete lines of code. Do type what's correct underneath?

i.e..... print("Thanks for playing along') has a syntax error, so is the right way to do it, print("Thanks for playing along!") and so on for the others, like, print(5+5) underneath the wrong code ?

name = "Hello"
print("Let's do some math!")
print(5 + "a")
5 + 5
print("Thanks for playing along!')
"Thanks for playing along!"

You've on the right path. Note that a variable needs to be defined before it's referenced. The rest is mostly missing or mismatched quotation marks. You can't concatenate/add an integer and a string, They need to both be numbers (add) or strings (concatenation).

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!

Strings can be made using either type of quote, but any single string must start and end with the same kind.
