Hi I would like to add a variable inside a string as below:

my_age = 40
greeting = "Hi "
name = "Jack "
age = ", I am "*my_age*" years old!"
greeting_with_name = greeting + name + age

I would like to add the my_age variable in the middle of the string for the age variable. But this code comes up with an error.

Thanks for any help
