stuck on this Challenge...

Please review my work! I'm having a hard time figuring what I'm missing in my code.

Thanks :)

membership.py
store_open = None
store_hours = [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18]

if time in store_hours:
  store_open = "True"

else:
   store_open = "False"

Your code is right for the most part, True and False on the other hand are not strings. taking out the "" on both True and False should fix the problem.

I seem to be missing something here too....

store_open = None
store_hours = [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18]

if time in store_hours:
  store_open == True
else:
  store_open == False

It evaluates properly when running in Python3, but not in Treehouse.

store_open == True // comparison : ' ==' , assign: ' = ' try this: store_open = True

Hi Charles, it is a common mistake to use == instead of = when assigning a variable. The double equals sign is a comparison operator which checks if both values on either side are equal and then returns True or False depending on the result. However, the single equal sign is what you should use for variable assignment
