I don't understand what it means when it says varl is not defined. It is!?

this is what I wrote:

varl="adceut"

then it says the variable varl is not defined

index.py
varl = 'adceut'

Hey Sarah,

actually your code is correct, the only problem is that the variable should be called "var1" and not "varl", so it's a one instead of a "l". But it's really a bit difficult to see the difference with the monospace font. I hope that helps! :)
