Why cant I complete this challenge?

Here is my code. Am i adding the string together wrong or something?

days_alive.py
age = 20
days = age*52*7
summary = "I am " + days + "days old!"

1 Answer

Yes, you are. You can't concatenate an integer with a string. If you want to do that, you have to use str() function. summary = "I am " + str(days) + "days old!"

Thank you! I should of realized that. Beginners mistake....
