Hi Adam,

You have assigned your variable correctly.

The issue lies on line 2. Do you remember the lessons on 'printing' o the console and using placeholders in strings?

I'll give you a clue.

print(" { guess what goes here }".format( guess what goes here ))

edit: It's more of a giveaway than a clue but leaving you to figure this one out and learn from it.

Thanks!! And yes it is indeed more of a giveaway lol.
