I don't understand how to answer: Now, create a variable named treehouse by combining two strings, "Tree" and "house".

Everytime I Answer it gives me an error message "Oops! Looks like task one no longer functions..."

name.py
name = "manuel"

Treehouse = input"treehouse"

The input function grabs input from a user. It's not needed for this challenge.

When you want to concatenate strings you can use the + operator, like this:

joined = "First " + "Second"
print(joined)

Would print:

"First Second"
