Jerome;

Welcome to Treehouse!

Task 3 is wanting us to utilize the string formatting method that was discussed in the course. An example would be something like:

name = "Jerome"

hello_statement = "Hello, my name is {}".format(name)

Hopefully that points you in the proper direction. Post back if you are still stuck.

Happy coding.
Ken
