the task is to reassign the menu variable to use the existing variable. What does he mean ?

'''''' python

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white" sundaes = available.split(';') menu ="Our available flavors are: {}." display_menu = (", ").join(sundaes) menu.format(display_menu) ''''''

Hi there,

When it says that you can do the join on the same line, it means on the same line as menu is defined. This basically means just bypassing the display_menu variable entirely and doing the join right there on the line. It would look something like:

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white" 
sundaes = available.split(';') 
menu ="Our available flavors are: {}.".format(", ".join(sundaes))
