Add the grocery_item hash to the items array inside of the grocery_list hash

help?

shopping_list.rb
grocery_list = { 'title' => 'Grocery List', 'items' => [] }
grocery_item = { 'title' => 'Bread', 'quantity' => 1 }
grocery_item['items'].push(add_grocery_list))

Hi Tobias,

You want to push the grocery_item onto the items array within grocery_list.

To access the array, start with:

grocery_list['items']

Then, call push on it, passing in the grocery_item as an argument. That looks like:

grocery_list['items'].push(grocery_item)

Make sense?

Steve.
