Why am I seeing Invalid Syntax?

I'm currently doing my first task. I've don't have any previous experience with REPLs but I've been able to navigate through the instructions. I've followed all of the steps necessary but I'm seeing SyntaxError: invalid syntax on my very last line. The line looks correct so I have no idea what's wrong.

It is because you are using parentheses in the print statement, even though you are using Python 2.7. Just remove the parentheses, or make a new repl in Python 3 with the same contents.
Change:

print("to be printed")

To:

print "to be printed"
