4.1 fill in the blank 16


Please help!

I have been at this for three days and it keeps saying my answer is incorrect. I am on the verge of tears

number1 = int(input("Enter the starting number: "))
number2 = int(input("Enter the next number: "))
print (the_sum)


Hi Shesha,

It does look like you have the overall solution, but do you have the right pieces in the right blanks? Look closely that what you have written here and then back on Stepik, find what is actually missing in the blanks, it’s often just a piece of each line of code.


Thanks for your response. I input the code the exact same way and I’m still getting “incorrect”. Idk what to do



Got it working now. Thanks!

My code is as follows:

number1 = int(input("Enter first number: ")
number2 = int(input("Enter second number: ")
the_sum = (number1 + number2)
