Hi Saul,

Basically you just need to create a variable with the string "Treehouse loves {}" with the placeholders being the place where the .format will come into play and place your name stored in the name variable in the placeholder position to read "Treehouse loves Saul" for example. You place the .format after the string. Please see the below code for reference:

name = "Tom"

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

Hope this helps! Happy Coding!!!
