Beginner here, could someone help me out here?

hey guys.
So every time I type $python
This error shows up. I’m not able to rectify this error. Can someone please help

The $ sign appeared by default or you added it ?

I added it cause he asked us to type $python

I think that the dollar sign is for initializing commands, try without putting it first, or maybe try python3 instead of python

that’s the command that tells the computer to user Python to run the file. Don’t write the $ sign.

I tried to run it like you guys mentioned but this is something new lol.

Do this to be sure everything is correctly installed:

  1. Open a terminal (click on window key and type CMD then hit enter)
  2. Type: ‘python’ without the ‘’
  3. Share a screenshot of the result
