Here's a few hints:

  • you only need the variable "favorite_color", you won't need "color"
  • the "print" statement should stand alone and not be part of an assignment
  • you'll need to use "favorite_color" as part of the argument to the "print" statement

You can give a "print" more than one argument to combine literal strings and variables. For example, if you had a variable named "food" that contained the word "burger", you could do something like this:

print("I sure am hungry. A", food, "would taste good right now.")

The output would look like:

I sure am hungry. A burger would taste good right now.

I'll bet you can get it now.

thanx a lot let me give it a try then
