Very first problem set. How do I get the program to print out the birthdate and last name together? Right now I have: print (raw_input('enter your date of birth')) print (raw_input('enter your last name'))

    the wikilinks? I read over those, but am brand new to any and all of this, so I've been struggling to get started.

    here are a couple more but maybe start with the Tutorial in the documentation http://troll.cs.ua.edu/cs150/book/index.html http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/html/index.html you are going to need to get used to the documentation and start finding answers. when you want to reuse the result of a statement, you 'store' it in a variable ``` >>> >>> a = 2 + 3 >>> b = 2 - 3 >>> print a, b 5 -1 >>> ``` a and b are variables

    I did not need to put the print command on the first two strings in order to get it to function

    nope ... it helps if your variable have descriptive names for short pieces of code or code examples, you can enclose it in 'bacticks' (left of 1 on a qwerty keyboard.) backticks code backticks ``` >>> dob = (raw_input('enter your date of birth')) enter your date of birth5/5/5555 >>> last = raw_input('enter your last name') enter your last namefinn >>> first = raw_input('enter your first name') enter your first namealva >>> print first, last, dob alva finn 5/5/5555 >>> ``` Otherwise please use a code pasting site: - http://dpaste.com - http://pastebin.com - https://gist.github.com/ - http://pastie.org - http://codepad.org - http://ideone.com - http://www.repl.it/ paste your code there and post the link here. select Python syntax highlighting when u paste. ... http://dpaste.com/1406703/
