Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types String concatenation

Don't understand what this quiz wants from me, in Python Basics

This keeps happening, I type a variable in the exact way I just learned how to and yet as an answer in the quiz it is unacceptable. I've tried subject = "Treehouse loves" + "name" subject = treehouse loves + name subject = "treehouse" + "loves" + "name" subject = "treehouse" + " name" Nothing seems to be acceptable.

name = "Melissa"
subject = "Treahouse loves" + "name"

try this:

name = "Melissa"
subject = "Treehouse loves" + name

Hey Melissa, first correct your string value. It is Treehouse and put a space after loves. Then after + sign use name as a variable not as a string. It will work....

name= "Melissa"
subject = "Treehouse loves " + name

Ok thank you, what worked before I even saw these answers was; subject = "Treehouse loves" + " Melissa". I added a space before my name and used the value of the variable instead of the variable name. From the way the question was worded I had thought I was supposed to enter the variable "name".
