Hi CJ,

You are close but probably overthought this one. For the "name" variable you only need a string of your name. For the subject, you create another variable with the string "Treehouse loves {}" with .format(name) on the end. The {} is a placeholder for whatever variable you pass through with .format(). In this case, you are passing in your name. Here is what the code looks like:

name = "Chris"

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

Hope this helps.


thank you so much

i did the same thing, but the question is a little different, u don't need to print out, just start with subject = ,and from here it should be easy already, it's just one line, 2 with the previous question
