name variable

Am I the only one that isn't getting this correct? I need to create a variable called name and the input is my name.

I did:

name = input("What's your name?") input =="Brett"

The challenge doesn't even mention input() or "input". Just put your name as the value of the variable. For example, name = "Kenneth".

Hi Brett,

Task 1 only wants you to create a name variable and assign your name to it.

name = "Brett"

Thanks guys I guess I was overthinking it. I appreciate the fast feedback.

Ok hopefully this wont be for each question but it seems I am stuck again.

How does: print ("Tree" + "house") not give treehouse like the example? I used lowercase tree and that didn't work either. In the example it has the word Tree uppercase, not sure if that makes a difference.

You want to do something similar to the first task. It's not asking you to print the string but to assign it to a variable.

name = "Jason"
treehouse = "Tree" + "house"
