I'm learning Python and can't even write the first example:

I am a beginner in python and not even able to solve this example:

print 2 ** 100

I am getting an error:

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

 I am using version 3.1

Where am I going wrong?

In python 3 version print statement is been replaced by print function.

The syntax is the same but you need to use parathesis

Old: print "The answer is", 2*2

New: print("The answer is", 2*2)

Old: print x,           # Trailing comma suppresses newline

New: print(x, end=" ")  # Appends a space instead of a newline

Old: print              # Prints a newline

New: print()            # You must call the function!

Old: print >>sys.stderr, "fatal error"

New: print("fatal error", file=sys.stderr)

Old: print (x, y)       # prints repr((x, y))

New: print((x, y))      # Not the same as print(x, y)!
