what does this mean?

TypeError: '>=' not supported between instances of 'str' and 'int'

1 Answer

Just to be clear, you ARE using the >= right!!! This error means you are trying to using a >= ,which is basically a 1st value greater than or equal to 2nd value. the variables you are using are different types. One is a string or "str", which is immutable (can't be changed), and the other is an integer or "int" which is mutable (can be changed). If what you're trying to do compares a variable to a number, try doing this:

variable >= int( number in here )

hope this helps. also, if it doesn't work after this, please post a snapshot using the camera icon in the treehouse workspace. Have a good day.
