Hello team! :) I run in to this error ValueError: too many values to unpack (expected 1)

treehouse:~/workspace$ python hello.py
Whats is your first name? Trenton Spears
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/treehouse/workspace/hello.py", line 1, in <module>
first_name, = input("Whats is your first name? ")
ValueError: too many values to unpack (expected 1)

I think it may be because of the "," you added after first_name, although not sure what your code is so it may be helpful if you would also add your code so that we can see exactly what happened :) You should write that way:

first_name=input("What's your name?")

Hope that helped!
