How do I split on "spaces" ?
I don't understand the question could someone help me to add a split to the variable that I created?
full_name = 'jon doe' name_list = full_name.split(" ") greeting_list = "Hi, I'm Treehouse" greeting_list.split(" ")

You have it correct. You just need to store the result of the call to split back into greeting_list:
greeting_list = greeting_list.split(" ")
Or you can do it in one line:
greeting_list = "Hi, I'm Treehouse".split(" ")
You don't even have to pass in " " for the argument if you don't want. Splitting on a space is the default for split.
