Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types String Formatting

Stuck on python basics challenge task about strings?

It's asking me to use the .format approach & I'm doing so, but still getting errors. Any feedback would be appreciated. Maybe it's how the question is worded is just how I'm getting it wrong is all..

strings.py
name = "Darren"
subject = "Treehouse loves {}"
subject.format(name)

""" Update """

I managed to figure it out after all. Like most programming errors I encounter, it was easier than I thought. Simply put, and in case anyone else encounters this issue in the future, it looks as follows:

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

And it's as simple as that!
