Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Use input()

What is wrong below? :o

Simple one this time. Make a variable named age that is assigned to an input() call. Give your input() a prompt of "What is your age?". You might need to add a space in there, though.

"Bummer! Add in a trailing space."

age = input("What is your age?")

Hi Alex,

just add a sspace between your question mark and end quotes :)


age = input("What is your age? ")

this works i just had one little space more than you after the question mark this is killing me XD

I don't understand why, but this code didn't work for some reason: age = input("What's your age? ")

Same here. In the console it works not in age.py. Very frustating

Hi Alex,

You are very close to the answer, here is how I did it:

age = input("What is your age? ")
# Don´t forget to place a freespace after the Questionmark.

Why are you learning Python? Maybe we have the same aims! I am learning it to bring my Start UP www.wolf-gate.com to the next level. Thank´s to Kenneth Love it´s easily possible :)
