Input command works on my system but not on this system and i cannot progress

I have tried this code in visual studio and it works fine. am i missing something?

favorite_color=input("What is your favorite color?  ")


input(favorite_color)
print("the colour", favorite_color, "is a great colour")

Hi quappi,

You've already assigned the variable favorite_color to the input of the user with the first line. Delete the second line and your code should work.

Hello! I just copied and pasted your code into a workspace, and I commented out the second line. Once I ran it and entered "Red" I received the output:

the colour Red is a great colour

My code below:

favorite_color = input("What is your favorite color?  ")

#input(favorite_color)

print("the colour", favorite_color, "is a great colour")

Your code worked for me as is, it just had an extra input field that didn't do anything.

As previously pointed out, the second "input" is not part of the instructions ans should be removed.

thanks for the help, i feel like an idiot. sorry about the obvious question.
