I need help
OK! Make a new variable named subject that concatenates (uses the + sign) the string "Treehouse loves" and your name variable. You've probably received an email or two with this subject already!
I typed in the first variable . Then after that I do not know how to do this ..?
name = 'Alwi' + 'Shaik' + ' Delgado' + ' Alaudin' subject = 'Treehouse Love' str('subject'+'name")

Hi! If you put a piece of text inside quotes (either single or double quotes, just be consistent), Python reads that as a string value (a string "literal"), which can be assigned to ("stored in") a variable.
The task is to assign your name as a string to a variable called
name. In the next step, concatenate this string (stored in the
name variable) with the string 'Treehouse loves', and store the result in a variable called
subject. You can concatenate string literals as well as variables referring to those strings.
# note: you don't have to put together your name # from separate parts for this task name = 'Alwi Shaik Delgado Alaudin' # the first element is a string literal, the second element is # the variable 'name' which refers to a string subject = 'Treehouse loves' + name # the 'subject' variable's value will be the string # 'Treehouse lovesAlwi Shaik Delgado Alaudin'
