You must watch the lesson again, there must be a usage of format() function and curly braces {} make note of them and use them accordingly.

In this case, you have two options:

  1. string concatenation

    print("the color " + favorite_color + " is my favorite!")
  2. or use string formatting

    print("the color %s is my favorite!" % favorite_color)
