Syntax error

if age <= 6: I keep getting a syntax error. I followed Mr. Craig exactly to a T so I'm not sure if this is a support issue or what.

It might be that the error is on a different line, but we'd need to see the rest of the code to tell. Take a look at this video about Posting a Question, and perhaps also this one about sharing a snapshot of your workspace.

Could be a number of reasons this is counted as an error. Share your code and we can comment further.

Two common problems would be:

  1. variable name not assigned.

  2. an error with indentation

Thank you for your help. I wasn't aware of how to share my code when initially asking my question. It ended up being an error with the indentation. I scraped the code and started over again and then played around with the indentation until it finally worked. Someone left instructions on how to upload code with the question so I'll be sure to do that going forward.
