Python Python Basics (2015) Python for Beginners Correct errors

I dont get what I need to do to pass this. I have declared a variable name = "Olle" and I have added "" around the 5

I dont get what I need to do to pass this. I have declared a variable name = "Olle" and I have added "" around the 5. And I still get an EOL error which should be impossible. Please let the user know what the expected output is. This is the first time i try tree house. But already stuck on super simple problem cause its super unclear what you want me to do. I fixed the code according to the python syntax but still get error when there shoulndt be one.

errors.py
print("Hello")
print(name)

print("Let's do some math!")
print(5 + "a")

print("Thanks for playing along!')

Hi Jerker,

For this question, it's easier just to show the issues. You almost had them all .. nice work!

print("Hello") // no changes required
name = "Dave" 
print(name) // had to declare and assign a 'name' variable

print("Let's do some math!") // no changes required
print("5" + "a") // add quotes around the integer

print("Thanks for playing along!") // change single quote at end of string to double quote

Good luck,

Dave
