Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types String Formatting

can't pass this one: OK, so now use .format() on the string "Treehouse loves {}" to put your name

OK, so now use .format() on the string "Treehouse loves {}" to put your name into the placeholder. Assign this to the variable subject again.

name = 'Kelsey'
subject = 'Treehouse loves {}'.format(name)

Ok. Thanks. I was putting parenthesis around it and an extra parenthesis around the Kelsey.
