Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types String Formatting

Strings phyton

OK, now use .format() on the string "Treehouse loves {}" to put your name into the placeholder. Assign this to the variable subject (so start with subject =).

name = "Vasy" 
subject = "Treehouse loves {} "

What's wrong with this code?

Hi Vasy,

first of all, you formatted "subject" with the string 'name', instead of the variable. Also, the formatted version of "Treehouse loves {} " should be assigned to subject. You printed out the formatted version, but didn't assign it. The end result should look like this:

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

Hope that helps

thanks! it's worked ;)
