.format method for strings

Hi there, I would appreciate some help on this question, I'm studying Python Basics.Thanks David

I want to make the email subject one more time, but this time let's use the .format() method for strings. Go ahead and make your name variable again. Hey, all practice is good practice, right?

The question is asking you to make your name into a variable.

so we will call our variable name and lets make it equal to David

name = "David"

the quotes are telling python that you want the variable(name) to be equal to the string("David")

so if you printed(name) you would get "David"

Put the following in and it should work for you: name = "David"
