creating_tuples.py How do I assign a tuple item to a variable

how to assign an item to a variable?

my_tuple = 'I', 'love', 'python'
my_tuple[2] = item3

You are close. You just have it reversed. The variable item3 should go on the left hand side of the assignment operator. my_tuple[2] should go on the right.
