Hello! I got stuck where it asks to create the email_greeting variable. I am not sure what it is asking...

Challenge task 3 of 3

1 Answer

It wants you to assign the string "Treehouse loves YourName" to a variable called email_greeting, using the variables you created earlier: treehouse and name. You can accomplish this by using the format method on a string. You put {} inside the string as a placeholder for your variable, and then you pass your variable in to the format method. If there is more than one {} in your string you separate your variables with a comma.

See below:

email_greeting = "{} loves {}".format(treehouse, name)
