Now, replace the value of "Treehouse" in greeting list with the first item in your name_list variable.

I don't know how to go from the information given.

full_name = "William Finch"
name_list = full_name.split(" ")
greeting_list = "Hi, I'm Treehouse".split()

So instead of saying "Hi, I'm Treehouse" they want you to say "Hi, I'm William", and use the 1st item in your name_list, which is your first name, to put into that string using string interpolation.

I did it like this - I replaced "Treehouse" with a pair of curly braces, then I call the format() method on this string, passing in the 1st item in the name_list (at index 0), then I call split() on the result of that, so I'm chaining the methods together

greeting_list = "Hi, I'm {}".format(name_list[0]).split()
