name = "Ashmit"
subject = "Treehouse loves {}.format(name)" 

# subject line is where the error is
# this is a string combined with a, you can for the moment say, it is a variable
# think it is a variable, rather than function turning it into a value

# subject = "Treehouse loves {}.format(name)" 

# {} this is a placeholder, this is where, the value from the variable is reserved to store

# you are using the double quotes including the .format(name)
# instead you have to concatenate or join it
# you are so close, just give another try

# hint - you just have to change the place of the double quotes,
