Python Python Collections (Retired) Tuples Two-ples

i just don't know about this one does it have something to do with the ** astrixs for unpacking?

It does indeed. Unpacking a tuple requires one less asterisk.

my_tupple = ('tom', 'pizza'), ('julia', 'carrots'), ('tim', 'mushrooms') # so I created a tupple of tupples string = " hi im {} and I love to eat {}"

for i in my_tupple: string.format(*i)

"hi im tom and I love to eat pizza" 'hi im julia and I love to eat carrots" "hi im tim and I love to eat mushrooms"

ha it works!
