Any suggestions for this challenge? I'm stuck trying to figure out this problem.

The submit button is now disabled, but it doesn’t look like it! Luckily, we have a class called disabled in our CSS that will style it for us. Chain the appropriate jQuery method to add the class of disabled to the submit button.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <button type="submit" class="submit-btn">Submit If You Can</button>

    <script src="app.js"></script>
$submit.attr("disabled",true); $submit.addClass("disabled");

var $submit = $('.submit-btn');
$submit.attr("disabled", true).addClass("disabled");
