syntax error help

not sure where to go from here

variable(name) = name
print("Let's do some math!")
print(5 + "a")
def 'a' = 5
print("Thanks for playing along!")

1 Answer

Python is a dynamic and strong language. So you can't add 5 to a! Also name is string not variable here.


print("Let's do some math!")
print("5" + "a")

print("Thanks for playing along!")
