subject + Treehouse loves zeynalka

Hello again!

You've got the right start - we just need to change some things around. First, we need an = after 'subject'. Since it's a new variable, we need the equals sign so that we're assigning it a value. We'll start with that:

name = "Zeynalka"
subject = Treehouse loves zeynalka

Now, since 'subject' is a string variable, we need to put quotes around its value:

name = "Zeynalka"
subject = "Treehouse loves zeynalka"

Now, we have your name in the string, but the 'name' variable has that already. That's where we can use our + sign to make it use the name variable:

name = "Zeynalka"
subject = "Treehouse loves " + name     

This way, 'subject' will be saved as "Treehouse loves Zeynalka", because 'name' is set to "Zeynalka".
