Cant understand whats wrong with my .format

Hi

I dont understand how I should write this code...

Thank you for youre help :)

strings.py

subject.format()

Hey Christoffer,

The format() method is applied to the string, so you should use it with the '.'. So it would look something like this:

name = "Christoffer";
subject = 'Treehouse loves {}'.format(name)
