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

You are almost there. You need to use the name variable itself in the format method. by passing it like this:

.format(name)

(You also should look at your spelling of the method format)

WRONG name = "Dane" subject = ("Treehouse loves {}".fomat("name"))

RIGHT name = "Dane" subject = ("Treehouse loves {}".fomat(name))

name is variable while "name" is string

You retained the misspelling of format..
