I'll start off by saying that not only am I new to Python but programming in general. But the problem is that whenever I have the user put in a number, then have the user put in another number, I can't get the two x,y variables to add up. the closest I've gotten was have x=2, y=3 and have it show up 23, NOT 5.
x = raw_input ("Give me the first number to add ")
print ("ok, ") + x
print ("got it!")
y = raw_input ("Now give me the second number to add! ")
print ("alright ") + y
print ("The answer to your problem is ") + (x+y)
raw_input ("press <Enter>")
