what's the answer

Could you help me?

banana.py
available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
sundaes = available.split(";")

menu = "Our available flavors are: {}."

display_menu = sundaes + ', '.join(", ")
menu.format(display_menu)

1 Answer

You are close. Inside the 'display_menu' variable, move 'sundaes' inside .join() replacing the second ", " and get rid of the concatenation operator '+' as you don't need it. So it will look like: ', '.join(sundaes). Also, on your last line, you need to add "menu = " at the beginning so it actually re-assigns the variable, instead of just calling the .format on it. Hope this helps!
