Hey everyone, I'm on the first homework problem and I have a question. The code I have looks like this... x = raw_input('What is your date of birth? ') y = raw_input('What is your last name? ') print (y + x) Everything goes but when it prints there are no spaces between the two pieces of input data. In other words it winds up looking like this. Smith4/24/1985 I'm missing something really simple to get the space in there, I just don't know what it is. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    print y,"(a space)",x the print statement prints only what you ask it to, nothing more nothing less. A space is treated as a string (like all the letters in the alphabet) so it's like expecting the computer to print the value of y without mentioning y in your print statement.
