In the context of this exercise, can I concatenate two strings and append the result in a single statement?

1 + 1 will evaluate to
2. The expression will be evaluated first, then the method is run on the evaluated result.
Because of this, we can concatenate two strings, which is an expression, and append the result to a list, all in the same statement. The general structure of the syntax will look similar to this:
