Python Python Basics (Retired) Shopping List Lists and Strings

joining strings

Great! Finally, make a variable named greeting where you join greeting_list back into a string, separated by spaces. You should end up with "Hi, I'm <your first name>" as the value of greeting. cant seem to get it

full_name = "chey pettitt"
name_list = full_name.split(" ")
greeting_list = "Hi, I'm chey".split(" ")
greeting = .join("greeting_list")

What variables are you starting with? Do you mean like this:

In [1]: greeting_list = "Hi, I'm chey".split(" ")

In [2]: greeting_list Out[2]: ['Hi,', "I'm", 'chey']

In [3]: space = " "

In [4]: greeting = space.join(greeting_list)

In [5]: greeting Out[5]: "Hi, I'm chey"

Hi Chey,

Do you mean like this:

In [9]: greeting = "Hi, I'm " + full_name

In [10]: greeting Out[10]: "Hi, I'm chey pettitt"

Or do you need to take a list of strings and construct the sentence?

should end up with greeting = hi im chey so do i write like greeting = greeting list somehow

got it!! must be getting confused to set the same values i just added same string so;

greeting = "Hi, I'm chey"

thats a better sum of events i could do it that way thanks ryan

Glad I could help
