Hi Juliana Egan

So when you are doing math, you will have to use the Python operators built in to the language to do math operations. I realize when you do math on paper you could use x to represent multiplication, but Python looks at x like its just another variable. To do multiplication in Python you would use the asterisk(*)

EXAMPLE

So if i wanted to multiply 20x20 and store it in a variable called twenties:

twenties = 20 * 20

You can look up others in Python Docs for Operations
