### IF -ELSE Statements

It helps to think of the three of them like this:

• An If statement gives the computer one option: if  is True, then do something. That’s all.
• An If-Else statement gives the computer two options: if  is True, then do something. If  if False, do some other thing!
• An If-Elif-Else statement gives the computer several options, where you can say “Check all of these conditions until you find one that’s True.”

### Suggested Video

Each kind of statement is indented in the same way - with 4 spaces. Here’s an example of each:

### If Statement:

```if x == 5:
print("x is 5!")
```

### If-Else Statement:

```if x == "Penny":
else:
print("Looks like your name isn't Penny!")
```

### If-Elif-Else Statement:

```if age == 50:
print("You're really old!")
elif age == 20:
print("You're kind of young!")
elif age == 10:
print("You're a kid!")
else:
print("I wonder how old you are?")```
