Why is this code wrong?

bins = [0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80]

df['AgeBin'] = pd.cut(df['Age'], bins)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

----> 3 df['AgeBin'] = {pd.cut(df['Age'], bins)}

NameError: name 'pd' is not defined

you need to tell python what pd is before you can use it.

pd may be the pandas module as in
import pandas as pd

Open in new window

But what then is df? It seems to be dict-like but again is not defined in the code you posted.
