Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types Lists

Quotes around list items

I'm confused as to why the video doesn't show creating a list with quotes around the numbers ie: [1, 2, 3, 4] but our code challenge doesn't pass unless we use quotes around our colors list.

Can't rem the challenge but in this example...the numbers are integers, colors are strings.

No quotes means it is a number (int), quotes means it is text (string). The use of quotes is dependent on whether you want an int or a string.

No quotes = int

Quotes = string
