Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Conditional Value

Why must i ask for help with every single task?

I don't seem to understand this at all and don't even really know what I should be asking.

conditions.py
admitted = None
if age > 13:
    print("True")

The task is asking you to run the code if age is greater than or equal to 13. Once you fix that operator, you have to reassign the "admitted" variable, not print "True".

How would I got about reassigning admitted? They have only showed me how to print with this function

Hey Jeffery,

Contrary to popular beliefs (and in my personal opinion), if you have zero coding experience coming in, Python is the worst to start with.

I would recommend at least completing the Digital Literacy Track and then moving on to the Front-End Development Track.

These together will give you the base needed to move on to whichever language you find passion with. I've been doing this for over a year now, am proficient in multiple languages, and I still can't deal with Python.

So, don't fret. Just start slow and Keep Coding! :)

:dizzy:

Thank you for the advise I'll switch courses as soon as I'm done steaming over feeling incompetent.

No need to feel that way. :) I'm proficient in Front-End and many Back-end languages, but I still cannot grasp Python. I've just accepted the fact that Python and I will never be friends. :)

Try the following:

admitted = None
if age >= 13:
    admitted = True

Jeffrey, I'm glad you're posting, because I'm right there with ya! It's like I understand the videos and then they say, "Now you try it!" and then I don't even know where to start.
