Hi Trevyn

It may be worth revisiting the video where Kenneth will discuss it in more detail and point out some restrictions on naming variables as this is a key concept of all programming languages that you must understand.

Having said that in Python to create a variable all we need to do specify a name followed by the equals sign and then the value you want assigned to it.

So in this case it wants you to create a variable called name followed by the equals sign and then use your name as the value making sure to wrap it in quotes as in: "Trevyn Mikesell".

Hope it helps!
