I'm pretty sure I got this right

I'm not sure what I did wrong with this code.

name = David
print name

print("Let's do some math!")
print(5 + "5")

print("Thanks for playing along!")

Hi David, I see the trouble spot! 5 + "5" is the same as saying Integer + String, which we've learned we can't do...or another more concrete example would be: can we add 5 + cookie? Or in code:

print(5 + "cookie")
