inputting

Use the favorite_color variable with your print statement to output the following message to the screen :

The color [USER INPUTTED COLOR] is a great color! I will respond with my favorite color when I run your script. For instance, if I enter "purple" I want your code to print:

The color purple is a great color!

using_input.py
favorite_color= input("what is your favorite color? ")

Hey Abdul hope you are doing well man. I just started also but it took a few tries for me to get this one after getting syntax error a few times. The first variable input is correct from what I can tell. Remember the task wants you to now create an output using the favorite_color variable so try using the print function(output) followed by the instructions "The color [USER INPUT] is a great color!

print =("The color" , "favorite_color", "is a great color!")

The input statement prompts the user and saves the value into a variable favorit_color. Now you just need to print the result and concatenation your newly assigned variable. So, try something this after what you have above,

Print (‘the color ’ + favorite_color ‘ + ‘ is a great color’  )

Just wanted to add that the + is the concatenation operator which basically just sticks what ever is on either side to together.

man this challenge is hard as fuck i dont understand why we dont have a hint bar or something its annoying as fuck]

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

print("The color ", favorite_color, " is a great color! ")

favorite_color= input("what is your favorite color? ") print("The color ", favorite_color, " is a great color! ")

print("The color", favorite_color, "is a great color!")

Idk what I'm doing wrong here.

favorite_color= input("what is your favorite color? ") print("The color ", favorite_color, " is a great color! ")

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

than below it copy this print("The color ", favorite_color, " is a great color! ")
