In the third step of the challange, I'm having problems with the step one, even when its been left unchanged.

I can't finish the challange.

days_alive.py
age = 21
days = (age*52*7)
estimate = round(days)
summary = "I am "+estimate+" days old!" 

In the third step of the challange, I'm having problems with the step one, even when its been left unchanged.

The variable estimate is of type int. For step three, it asks that estimate be converted to type String before being concatenated into summary. So, for your answer, make sure to convert the variable estimate into a string.

Also, for added practice, try and use the "I am {} days old" string and the String.format() method. This practice will help you in the long-run.
