option1="conversion to celsius"
option2="conversion to fahrenheit"
display=input("Enter the option 1 or 2")
if display==1:
  temperature=float(input("Enter the temperature in fahrenheit"))
  #conversion into celsius
  print("temperature"+fahrenheit+"degree fahrenheit")
if display==2:
  temperature=float(input("Enter the temperature in celcius"))
  #conversion into celsius
  print("temperature"+celsius+"degree celsius")

It's a simple fix. The only problem is that input takes the users text as a string instead of an integer. To get your if statement to work I would suggest using this for line 4:

if display == '1':

and this for line 9:

elif display == '2':

You want to use elif in line 9 because otherwise you will always get an answer followed by invalid when picking option 1. Another fix to make would be to put the fahrenheit and celsius variables inside of str() when doing the final print() because otherwise you will get an error for adding a float to a string (the str() function converts your float to a string).
