Similar to how you split your full_name into a list of items, the split() method works on any string.

Given a string "Hi, I'm Treehouse", you can split on spaces by adding the split() method:

"Hi, I'm Treehouse".split()

You can then assign it to the variable greeting_list:

greeting_list = "Hi, I'm Treehouse".split()

What exactly are you confused about?

The code you have written will solve the problem but you need to create a variable called "greeting_list" (rather than name_list) and use the string specified in the question.

the variable name should be set to " greeting_list" not "full_name" so you should code like this: greeting_list ="Hi, I'm Treehouse".split()
