Hi, I have entered this in, and for some reason, it is not working. am I doing this wrong. I followed the directions. What Am I doing wrong?

strings.py
name = "Miguel"
subject = "Treehouse loves" + name

1 Answer

You are absolutely correct in your code.

But the string is "Treehouse loves ".... Space after loves. This thing gets everyone at least once.

Here is an example.

name = "DejaVuHuh"
subject = "Treehouse loves " + name;

Happy coding!
