2 posts were split to a new topic: Type error when printing a string and variable

Hello, I am working on day 8 and below is the start of my code:

print('Hello, welcome to this page')
name = input('Name? ')
print('Hello', name)

It keeps returning the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 3, in <module>
TypeError: 'str' object is not callable

I tried changing name to to name1,name2,etc… and I am still facing the same issue. Can anyone help?

Hey @Tmanlearns welcome to the forums.

It’s because you need to use the same kind of quotes. Both need to be " or ' and can’t be mixed and matched

Thank you for pointing that out! I fixed it and I am still facing the same issue, do you have any idea on what could be wrong?

Hi @Tmanlearns can you please post a link to your Repl so the community can see the error message and suggest some ideas?

Thank you @IanAtReplit @not-ethan . I solved the issue by deleting the work file(that is and creating a new one. Is there a way to mark this as solved?

That’s ok @Tmanlearns this is a thread for any issues with Day 8. No need to mark as solved.

please help me with this.
I am new to the coding business and i need some help

Hey @himateja_yarlagadda welcome to the forums.

The problem is that you did not end the string or the print statement. To do this add ") at the end of the line.

I got stuck in the challenge 8. I wrote all my statement and my condition. It doesn’t go inside of the statement.
Can you help me?

Hi @Bea2022 thanks for your question.

I think the issue might be with the following section of code:

if day == "monday":
    print(biginning+start + monday+close)
elif day == "tuesday":
    print(biginning+start + tuesday+close)
elif day == "wenesday":
    print(biginning+start + wenesday+close)
elif day == "thurday":
    print(biginning+start + thurday+close)
elif day == "friday":
    print(biginning+start + friday+close)
elif day == "saturday":
    print(biginning+start + saturday+close)
elif day == "sunday":
    print(biginning+start + sunday+close)
    "what day is today!\nYou need to introduce the wright name of the day"

The day you type in must be EXACTLY the same as the options in the if…elif…else section of code, wednesday and thursday have a slight typo in the code shown above.

You also need to add a print to the last line of code, e.g.

print( "what day is today!\nYou need to introduce the wright name of the day")

Hope this helps!

Hey @Salladin welcome to the forums!

When you do if mood == "1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6" it checks if the var mood has the value of 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6. To check the value of mood against 1, 2, 3 and so on you would use the Or operator. Here is an example

if mood == "1" Or mood == "2"

aaaa :)))) Super Tks . you are great :hugs: … coudnt getit right . TKS

Can someone please review my code for Day8 of the “100 Days of code - The Complete Python Course”?
Thank you!

  1. I don’t know if this is right and am not sure if there is anyway I can use AI to be my assignment grader. Is there a feature in replit like that?

  2. In my code, am I using nested If statements? My understanding is that I am not.

Repl link:

# Collect Personal Info
print("Let's collect some information!\n")

name = input("What is your name?\n")

fav_athlete = input("Who is your favorite athlete?\n")

fav_superhero = input("Who is your favorite superhero?\n")

fav_hobby = input("What's your favorite hobby?\n")

fav_city = input("What's your favorite city?\n")

# Day of the week
day = input("What day of the week is it today?\n")

I hope this doesn’t mean school assignment. Given that it’s 100 days of code I think that is unlikely. EDIT: Received confirmation that this is not a school assignment.

  1. Try Ghostwriter. There’s a 7-day free trial followed by like 1,000 cycles/month
  2. I don’t think that these are nested if statements because they are not indented under other if statements.
  3. Try using this method:
    Rather than if day == "Monday" or day == "M"…, use this:
    if day.lower() in ['monday', 'm']. This processes the data as lowercase, meaning you only need the lowercase words. It also makes it a list instead of a bunch of “or” statements.

You forgot the parentheses.
