Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types Use .split() and .join()

I think it's time for a snack. Luckily I have a string full of types of ice cream sundaes. Unluckily, they're all in one

im finding it hard to understand the question and going through it

banana.py
available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
"banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white".split(';')

The challange says that you need to assign a new variable called sundaes, and then you can do split on string that you have on available, like this :

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"

sundaes = available.split(";")

Then you must assign anothe variable and do a .format(sundaes) at the end.

On the last task you need to use .join() and what challenge demands from you in parentheses :)

thank you very much really helped
