i cant figer it out

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"

Task 1: You need to do is create a variable named sundaes and equate it to: available.split(';') this will separate each item in the 'available' variable and store it in the sundaes variable. Task 2: You want to create a "menu" variable and equate it to "Our available flavors are: {}." Task 3: You need to be able to "join" menu with the sundaes; to do that you add this to the end of your "menu" code:

.format(', '.join(sundaes))

Here is the full program:

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"

sundaes = available.split(';')
menu = "Our available flavors are: {}.".format(', '.join(sundaes))
