Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types String concatenation


OK! Make a new variable named subject that concatenates (uses the + sign) the string "Treehouse loves" and your name variable.

You've probably received an email or two with this subject already!

name = "Shashank"

You have passed the first task. Now in the second task, you need to create a new variable that is "Treehouse loves" plus your name:

name = "Shashank"
subject = "Treehouse loves " + name

Concatenation is when you add 2 things (usually strings) together using the plus sign.

Hi shivanand,

try this:

name = "Shashank"
subject =  "Treehouse loves " + name

The + sign adds your name to the string and the result is stored inside the subject variable

Makes sense?
