  1. You are missing a closing parenthesis from the end of your first line
  2. Line 5 should have the same indentation (i.e., none) as the other lines around it.
  3. Your line 5 logic doesn't make sense to me in regards for the rules of the rock-paper-scissor game. More importantly, your trying to set the value of win to win + a random value, but at this point, win (on the right side) is not defined so your code makes no sense to the compiler. Please, review your logic.

I fixed your code: https://onlinegdb.com/wLkBVepCm

Edit: You have one little mistake...

length = (input("Please enter rock, paper, or scissors.  ") # Delete the first '('

import random
things = "rock","paper", "scissors"
win = win + random.choice(things) # No indentation is necessary here

length =input("Please enter rock, paper, or scissors.  ")

import random
things = ["rock","paper", "scissors"]
win = random.choice(things)
