Hi Richard,

The answer to task 3 is something you've done in task 2 which is concatenation which is the process of joining two or more strings together to form one single and larger string, in Python concatenation is achieved by simply using the + symbol which as I mentioned earlier you've already done in task 2.

See the below.

email_greeting = treehouse + ' loves ' + name

It's just that simple :smiley:

Happy coding!
