I tried to put my name and, that I am learning python, but it still showed "Hello, World." Please help me.

I tried to write "Hello, Nate" and "Nate is learning python", but it showed "Hello World" Please help me.

Can you add a snapshot? That way a mistake can be identified

Did you save after you finished?

Hi Nathaniel Agbontaen, What you have is correct. I have tried running your code and the outcome is same as what you expected.

print("Hello, Nate") 
print("Nate is learning python")

So, my guess is make sure you save the file before executing it!

I will assume you were printing the strings this way!

  print("Hello, World")
  print("Hello, Nate")
  print("Nate is learning python")

So what I did instead was this:

print("Hello, Nate") print("Nate is learning python")

Then for the console I did this:

treehouse : ~/workspace$ python hello.py Hello, World treehouse : ~/workspace$

Expected result was supposed to be this:

treehouse : ~/workspace$ python hello.py Hello, Nate Nate is learning python treehouse : ~/workspace$

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, Nate

Okay, I saved it before executing it, and it worked! Thank you so much Shem!
