What does 'can't assign to literal' error mean? I did: '3 + 3' = 'six' print ('3 + 3') It gives me that error. I intended to get 'six' printed out, since I intended to assign 'six' to '3 + 3'

you cannot assign a string to another string '3+3' is an illegal name because there's numbers and operators only
``` var x = "y" ``` The above is the standard format for assignment.
Note that it is not this: ``` var "x" = "y" ```

Other answers:

on the left side u have to have a variable name to assign to a string ,a number,or an other variable that has to be on the right side. so if u wanted to call your variable something like 3+3 it cant be a string ,and u cant start the variable name with a number or have an operator in it. Instead you could call it threeplusthree or threeplus3. so: threeplus3='six' should do it. :) Check this for further info: (1.6.1. Literals and Identifiers)
