Hi Jordan

I believe you are stuck on challenge task 2 of 2.

There are two ways you can do this.

Either using f-string...

favorite_color = "blue"
print(f"The color {favorite_color} is my favorite!")

...or .format():

favorite_color = "blue"
print("The color {} is my favorite!".format(favorite_color))

You don't need to use the assignment operator (=) in the print statement. You just need to use the variable favorite_color there. You are assigning a value to the variable on your first line already -> favorite_color = "blue".

Hope this helps!
