need help with slip and join task 3

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"

sundaes = available.split(';')

menu = "Our available flavors are : {}.".format(','.join(sundaes))

reassign the menu variable to use the existing variable and .format() to replace the placeholder with the new string in display_menu. If you're really brave, you can even accomplish this all on the same line where menu is currently being set.

My code:

//need help
display_menu = ','.join(sundaes)

// need help
menu = "Our available flavors are : {}.".format(','.join(display_ menu))

//need help
display_menu = ','.join(sundaes) :point_left: you need a space after the comma

menu = "Our available flavors are: {}.".format(','.join(display_ menu)) :point_left: don't "join" a second time, the argument to "format" should just be "display_menu" (with no space in the name).

Thank you for your help
