You have the correct idea. There are items to clean up:

  • There isn't a built-in join command. And if there was, it's not necessary since you can get the count (length) of a queryset directly using len(Articles.objects.all())
  • When concatenating strings, all parts must be strings. So the out should be wrapped using str(out)
  • Punctuation matters! Notice there should be a period at the sentence end and there should be a space before and after the article count value.

Not an syntax error, but it is not a good practice to reuse object names such as Article as variable names. It can make the code less readable if it's not obvious that Article no longer represents the imported object Article. Additionally, you loose access to the imported object Article once the name is reused locally.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!
