Make a variable named age that is assigned to an input() call. Give your input() a prompt of "What is your age?".

Can someone put in the code on how to make a variable named age that is assigned to an input() call?

age.py
age = 19

Hey there,

you just assigned your age to the variable but you have to prompt the user for the input with an input call. Like so:

age = input("What is your age? ")

Also make sure to not forget the trailing space after the "?".

I hope that helps! :)
