Here's a few hints:

  • the "format" function doesn't change the string you apply it to, it creates a new one that you'll need to save
  • you won't need triple quotes here, regular ones will do
  • all of these statements will be part of a main program, none of them will need to be indented
  • you can apply the "format" function directly to the template string
