Another error probably related to my previous questions

I am getting a Line 7: Unexpected token ILLEGAL

app.js
const https = require("https");

const request = https.get("https://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", response => {
  console.log(response.statusCode);
});

request.on('error', error => console.error(`Problem with request: ${error.message}`));

Hi Anthony,

I believe the issue is ticks around the the string parameter in the console.error function. Change the ticks to single quotes and it should fix the syntax error:

request.on('error', error => console.error('Problem with request: ${error.message}'));

Hope this helps
