Python is hard! help

This is hard for me..


Finally, create a new variable named summary that adds the string version of days into "I am {} days old!".

age = 18
days = age * 52 * 7
summary = print("I am {} days old"(days))

Hi Felix,

You're doing great!

For this last task in the challenge, we don't need to print anything - we just need the variable summary to hold a string with our variable concatenated or use a formatted string.

Let's look at string concatenation first.

age = 18
days = age * 52 * 7

# python doesn't like numbers concatenated with strings,
# so we have to explicitly cast numbers into strings with str(number)
summary = "I am " + str(days) + " days old"

Finally, here's a version using String Formatting

age = 18
days = age * 52 * 7
summary = "I am {} days old".format(days)

Your code was really close to this - it was just missing the .format after the string and the challenge doesn't want us to print it, just assign to summary.

Hope this helps,
