Task 2 (delete) after "naming things" video

how do I add Total as a new variable and use current_count and upcoming_releases to become total?

current_count = 14
planned = 5
upcoming_releases = 2
del planned
current_count + upcoming_releases = total

Hi Jessica,

You have the right idea but you need to reverse the left and right sides.

You'll always have a single variable on the left side of an assignment operation.

The value on the right gets assigned to the variable on the left.
