Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types String Formatting

Strings, positing with 'format()'. I have attempted every variation to complete this task and it is not working.

What am I missing?

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

Hi there, Mike! I'd be interested to know what you tried first because my gut instinct says it was probably closest then. I feel like at this point you might have overthought it. So I'm going to give some hints:

  • The solution to this is two lines
  • You do not need triple double quotes on either side of your string. Ie "Michael" instead of """Michael"""
  • The line that contains subject = should also have the .format

Hope this helps, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:
