You are using a Python v3 interpreter but a Python v2 tutorial.
Python v3 has several new features which are not backward compatible
print( 'hello' )
You can either downgrade Python to v2 and follow your tutorial
or find a v3 tutorial. (If you can already program just use the
one on the Python web site or if you are a new programmer you
might like to try mine :-)
