I know you can't add a string to a number, so i changed that. What am I doing wrong? syntax error?

What am I doing wrong for this challenge? Can someone help elaborate?

name = 'Vega Rogers'

print("Let's do some math!")

print(str(5) + "a")

print("Thanks for playing along!')

You're very close! Your issue appears to be the last line:

# Starts with " ends with '
print("Thanks for playing along!')

# Change to
print("Thanks for playing along!")
