I am on lecture 2 (6.00) and using Python 3x. I am having problem with the following code. I type the same thing as the lecture but apparently i got the printout as y instead of 9. can anyone explain? y=0
x=3
itersLeft=x
while (itersLeft>0):
y=y+x
itersLeft=itersLeft  1
print ('y')

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0somewhere in the course instructions they said NOT to use Python 3.x because it is not backwards compatible and some of the example code won't work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, that's true, However, nearly everything will work except print, so if you're fine with making the necessary adjustments you can get away with using 3 if you really want to.
