Why isn't this working? It's not turning days into a string.

It says that my summary variable isn't a string. What's wrong?

age = 11
days = age * 52 * 7

summary = "I am {} days old!", str(days)

1 Answer

You're missing the .format() method required to implement your string into the first string. Your str(days) conversion works fine, though.

See here -

summary = "I am {} days old!".format(str(days))
