Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Conditional Value

If this then that

I'm going to create a variable named age.

I need to make an if condition that sets admitted to True if age is 13 or more.

admitted = None

please help me

conditions.py
admitted = None
age = 122
if age >= 13:
      print("admitted is True!")

It's pretty straight-forward. Here's the rest with the else. Take a peek!

admitted = None
if age >= 13:
  admitted = True
else:
  admitted = False

You're doing really well and you're very close here. Always keep in mind that challenges are very picky. They don't want you to set the value of age. They're going to do that to test your code, so you need to keep age open for any value they send. Right now you're overwriting what they send with ร ge = 122'. Also, they want you to set the value of admitted to true, not print that it's true. Take a look at my solution:

admitted = None
if age >= 13:
  admitted = True

that was great Jennifer, thanks........ How can i add an ELSE to that IF Function to set admitted to FALSE

Actually, I added that bit after he asked about the else. P The problem is I managed to put the comment in the wrong place! Woops!
