I am trying to make sense of this. My summary is a string

I honestly don't know how to solve this.

days_alive.py
age = int('18')
days = age * int('52') * int('7')
summary = print("I am {} days old!" .format(days))

You can't assing the function print to a variable, but you don't need it to store a string. print() is to show strings, not to store them.

age = int('18')
days = age * int('52') * int('7')
summary = "I am {} days old!".format(days)   #this is a string
print(summary)   #to see what's the string about
