# why wont it work

if bp_rate>120:
print ("your patient has high bp rate.")
if bp_rate<80:
print("your patient has low bp rate.")

• Colon (:) is missing in the last if condition.
• backslashes(\\) required at the end of each lines

For specifying range you can make use of range function instead of typing all.

Syntax: range(start, stop, step)

Parameter:

• start: [ optional ] start value of the sequence
• stop: next value after the end value of the sequence
• step: [ optional ] integer value, denoting the difference between any two numbers in the sequence.

By using range() function you can do it as follows:

bp_rate = int (input ("what is the bp rate of your patient: "))
if bp_rate > 120:
print ("your patient has high bp rate.")
elif bp_rate < 80:
print ("your patient has low bp rate.")
elif bp_rate in range (80, 121):
else:
print ("Wrong input.")

You need a colon (:) at the end of your last if. Also, you cannot break instructions into multiple lines, unless you use two backslashes (\\) at the end of lines to indicate continuation in the next line.

Also, it's much easier to express what you want like this:

```bp_rate = int(input("What is the BP rate of your patient? "))
if bp_rate > 120:
print("Your patient has high BP rate.")
elif bp_rate < 80:
print("Your patient has low BP rate.")
else:
