Python Introducing Tuples Getting to Know Tuples Creating Tuples

Regex check is broken (i believe)

When I run this in my terminal, it returns <class 'tuple'>. I've tried this with and without a comma after 'python' in the example

create_tuple.py
my_tuple = ('I','love','python')
print (type(my_tuple))

Hi there, Brian Vagnini! I'm inclined to agree with you on this and will bring it up with our Python instructor. However, it's sort of enforcing good Python styling practices outlined in PEP 8. Essentially, it's looking for spaces between the different parts of the tuple.

So where you have:

my_tuple = ('I','love','python')

It's expecting:

my_tuple = ('I', 'love', 'python')

Note the spacing :smiley: Hope this helps! :sparkles:
