You're close, but can do all of this in one line. Also, double check your spelling of Treehouse and remove the extra space after the curly braces.

name = "eddy"
subject = "Treehouse loves {}".format(name)

The Spaces where the problem

Try:

name = "eddy" subject = "treehouse loves " subject = "treehouse loves {} " print(subject.format(name))
