Yeah, Flask is so far the worst course I've taken in Treehouse. I think they should really consider doing something about it because it's really confusing. But anyway... Here is what you should do in this task:

from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/') .  
@app.route('/<name>')
def hello(name='Eric'):
     return 'Hello {}'.format(name)
