We have spam that is equal to 7. So in this code, spam is represented by 7. Then, if we look at the if statements, they mean that if a statement is true, it will do what is below it. In this, if spam (which equals 7) is greater than 5, than it will print “five”. If spam is great than 8, it will print “eight”. This code’s outcome will be “five” because spam (7) is a bigger number than 5 while spam(7) is less than 8, it will not come out to “eight” since the statement is false. Hope that helps!

7 is greater than(>) 5 and output iz five and less than 8 so second condition is false


that does help but how exactly do i type it out?


Are you typing it out in Python Shell or Sololearn?


python shell


Im actually typing all the things I learn in python with python 3.6 (32 bit) as I go. that way I can get a handle on typing faster.
