I am facing a challenge in how to link previously defined variables into a sentence. I have tried several changes but failed to pass the last challenge.

name = "Taurayi"
treehouse = "Tree" + "house"
email_greeting = treehouse + "loves" + name

The first two tasks l have passed them but the last task where l am supposed to link the two previous variables in a sentence that is where l am facing a challenge.

Welcome to Treehouse!

You are very close. Right now your output is "TreehouselovesTaurayi". You need to add a space before and after "loves" in your code.

Happy coding,

Hey Ken,

I am having this same issue, I have a space between treehouse and name but still come back with "try again." Any ideas?

name = "Drew"

treehouse = "Tree" + "house"

email_greeting = treehouse + "loves" + name

if name == "Drew":

print("{} is cool! ".format(name))


print("{} Treehouse ".format(treehouse))

Write your code as follows :

name = drew treehouse = " Tree + house " email_greeting = Drew " loves " treehouse

Hi sorry you shld code as follows Drew

name "Drew" treehouse = "Tree" + "house" email_greeting = "Tree house loves Drew"
