Answer not accepted

I have checked my work in the python console and still receive an incorrect response.

name = "Alex" subject = "Treehouse loves {}"
print(subject.format(name))
Treehouse loves Alex

Perhaps I am reading the question incorrectly, but at this point I am unable to continue.

Cheers

strings.py
name = "Alex"
subject = "Treehouse loves {}"
print(subject.format(name))

You dont have to use print.The challenge has just asked you to assign it and leave it as such. .format can be used anywhere ,not only in print command .

name="ALex"
subject="Treehouse loves {}".format(name)

Your answers are fantastic. :+1:

I noticed something. Sorry if this sounds mean, I'm just trying to help you make even more professional answers :wink:

You shouldn't have spaces before punctuation (!, ., ,, etc). You also should have spaces after punctuation.

Instead of:

Hello .My name is Alex .Nice to see you !

You can write more professionally like this:

Hello. My name is Alex. Nice to meet you!

Again, this isn't required, and no, I'm not trying to be mean. I'm just trying to help you make your answers be more professional :+1:

Just a heads up!
