Why did I receive this - blanks.py check_please.py hello.py - etc ? Python Basics. - Entered: print("Hello,World")

print ("Hello, World")

Console: treehouse:~/workspace$ ls
blanks.py check_please.py hello.py notifications.py numbers.py

ls is a command to list the files and directories in the current directory. So it looks like your workspace directory contains files named blanks.py, check_please.py, hello.py, etc.

If you want to run hello.py (and print "Hello,World") you would enter python hello.py
