# Python Basics, Challange Task 1 of 1, Correct Errors

I am having trouble with understanding how to do what is required for completing this challenge. I have reviewed the video 3 times

errors.py
```print("Hello")
print(name)

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

print("Thanks for playing along!')
```

So, they want you to correct any errors that might make any of the following statements not work correctly:

```print("Hello")
print(name)

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

print("Thanks for playing along!')
```

First one looks okay. Second - why might this not print out? Because there's no 'name' variable declared. 3rd - looks correct. 4th - what's wrong with this? You can't add an integer and a string. What might fix this? Declaring 5 to be a str type. 5th - The quotes don't match.

Hope that helps!

Hey there Don,

there are a few ways how you can solve this challenge. The goal is to solve the errors in the code. The problems in the code are that...

• we're printing out a name variable even though we didn't create this variable
• we want to print the result of the addition of the variable a and 5 but the "a" is in quotes and it also doesn't have a value
• in the last print function there is one double quotation mark and one single quotation mark

If you fix all of these issues a possible solution would be this:

```print("Hello")
name = "Don"
print(name)

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

print("Thanks for playing along!")
```

I hope that helps! :)
