The easy way is to set it up in your router.

There's some arcane incantations in /etc/dhcpcd.conf. Take a look at your version of that file.

But, if your router has reserved addresses use that.
Any language using left-hand whitespace for syntax is ridiculous

Any requirement to use a crystal ball or mind reading will result in me ignoring your question.

It might be easier/more convenient to create a reservation on your router instead. You will need to know the MAC address of the Pi (either the wired or the wireless MAC depending on how you're connecting).
The router will then always hand out that particular IP address to the device with the corresponding MAC.

If using the GUI the network widget on the task bar offers IP settings as an option. Right-click the up/down arrow widget.
