Why is this not being executed?

You seem to have an ampersand character (&) and a 2 followed by ampersand (2&) at the start of your command lines. Try removing those.

Also, not sure what you expect this program to do since you are not even printing the result.

Iā€™m a beginner and I was following a tutorial of Mosh. But anyways thank you for the response

That is fine (everyone is a beginner at some point). I was just noting that it will print out nothing since you do not have a print statement.

Try wrapping your result in a print call to actually see some output:

print(2 + 3)

Just to make it easier for you to verify it worked. Cheers!
