The question states: How do you create a variable named treehouse by combining two strings, "Tree" and "house"?

There are many was to combine strings.

# For small cases, the simplest is to 
# concatenate them using a plus sign:
treehouse = "Tree" + "house"

# you can also join() a list of items
treehouse = ''.join("Tree", "house")
