Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types String concatenation

name = "jordan" #this is correct
subject = "Treehouse loves"#you got to concatenate this with the variable name (dont forget to add ones pace  after loves)
subject + name = #not necessary

name = "jordan" subject = "Treehouse loves"

you've got the first part right, both of your variables are declared but they want subject to be "Treehouse loves jordan", right now it is just "Treehouse loves"

you can set subject to subject + name like this

subject = subject + name

but, there might be spacing issues here

let me know if that doesn't make sense you always though will only have one variable name on the left side of an equals sign.

You don't need that third line.

You just want to add "+ name" to the end of the second line.

Also remember to add a space after the word "loves" as Antonio suggested.

yes this answer made sense, thank you and Jose and Antonio for helping me with this.
