    WHY? >>> print I am 25
    File "<stdin>", line 1
    print I am 25
    ^
    SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'. Did you mean print(I am 25)?
    >>> yes

    Anyone have the Python programs Jessica shows at the end? Scrabble, state_capital_game, Tip Calculator?

  33. ScreenPrintR September 22, 2019 at 10:57 pm - Reply

    Okay, I got it: for name in names:
    sentence = sentence + " " + name

    I couldn't get the Sentence = Sentence + name to concatenate properly. I.E. 'Bob Ellen Rick Zelda'

    Hi Jessica, I watch python Vedio. And I installed python 3.6 on my windows 10 OS. And I could see there is difference in arithmetic calculations. if take division of 1/2. In your vedio it is shown as 0 as python is taking as integer. But when I checked in 3.6 version on windows 10 OS for calculation 1/2 is 0.5. is it bug or something?? please clarify.

    Anyone find the Strings and Choices?

  37. ScreenPrintR September 22, 2019 at 10:57 pm - Reply

    Here's the 2nd if else using the Idle Interactive IDE:
    temperature = 70
    if temperature > 60 and temperature < 75:
    print ("Just right!")
    else:
    print ("Too extreme")

    Just right!

    The only difference from mine to jessica's is the Parentheses. After typing, print ("Just right!"), I hit enter, and the backspace button to line up the else: If I did not do that I got a Syntax error.

  38. ScreenPrintR September 22, 2019 at 10:57 pm - Reply

    Had to save the If Else in a file and run it. Idle Interactive wouldn't work:
    sister_age = 15;
    brother_age = 12;
    if sister_age > brother_age:
    print ("sister is older")
    else:
    print ("brother is older")

    I added braces, and semi-colons to make it work. Otherwise I received syntax errors

    I am trying to understand how I could use python in the real world, it is boring, I see lots of people very exciting about it, I would like to see a video that shows everything, writing the program and the final product. If I want to learn python coding I need to understand the outcome of the project.
