why doesn't python 2.7.1 say 'even' or 'odd' like it does in lecture 2 when i try to run it?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I typed this in to another window: x=15 if (x/2)*2 == x: print 'even' else: print 'odd' and hit 'run in python shell' and it's not doing anything. i feel like an idiot. someone help me!

OpenStudy (anonymous):

nevermind, I understand now that you have to 'run module', but it says that "else" is a syntax error? wtf? is "else" not used in this version?

OpenStudy (shadowfiend):

else should be indented at the same level as if: if (x / 2) * 2 == x: print 'even' else: print 'odd'
