arrayOfInts... What am I doing this wrong?

So, I wrote this the exact same way it was shown, but I keep getting the "Cannot compile code, preview the code" or something of that nature.

What am I missing here?

arrays.swift
// Enter your code below
var arrayOfInts: [String] = ["One", "Two", "Three", "Four", "Five", "Six"]

Hey there Ryan,

like the name of the array already implies it should contain Ints (Integers) instead of strings but you're creating an array with strings instead. To create an array with Ints just change "String" to "Int" and fill your array with numbers instead of strings.

Like so:

// Enter your code below
var arrayOfInts: [Int] = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]

I hope that helps, if you have further questions feel free to ask! :)
