Python Python Basics Meet Python Variables

I follow instructions specified by the video, but the terminal is not reflecting the content that I am inputting.

So I am following the video in "Variables" and following the instructions stated in the video. I typed in print("Hello, Kris") and even print("Kris is learning Python") and it works out fine (Took a while for the terminal to recognize this though) but then I do first_name = "Ada" on the first line (I created additional lines instructed in the video) and other content, but the terminal still reads "Hello," Kris" and "Kris is learning Python" even after entering python hello.py. Is there something I am missing regarding the lines?

Hi Kristopher,

Have you tried typing the line:

print first_name

in your hello.py file following the variable assignment?

Be sure to add a snapshot or scrape of your code so we can see what it is.
