Python code challenge

I am not sure what you are asking for.

It gives me an error if I use

name = input()

as if its using Python 2 which does not support what we just learned..?

Hey Jake,

The first challenge just wants you to create a variable and assign your name to it. I'm not sure where you are getting input().

name = "Jake"

You pretty much have it, except for 2 things.

One... the challenge just wants the variable declared, so you need to delete the print method.

Two, you have the variables backwards at the end... treehouse first and then name

email_greeting = "{} loves {}".format(treehouse, name)

Other than that... good job! :)
