My python version is 3.5.0 and I do not have Python 2. How do I set up and install python 2.x on my local environment?
I would like to set up python 2 in my local environment. How do I set it up so that I could call it with "python2" as set in Treehouse WorkSpace? Thank you

If you have a Mac, Python 2 is already installed on it and can be accessed by typing Python in the Terminal (if you want Python 3, you type Python3 in the terminal).
But, both versions are openly available for download at Python.org if you do need to download Python 2.x
This is a really good video I found to help install Python 2.7.12. Note, that you have to do the last three steps in the video each time you want to actively use Python. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYUBz4mrnFU. I hope this helps.
