Remember that HASH = { KEY , VALUES }

So in this code challenge

contact =  { "name" => VALUE, "phone_number" => VALUE }

Where "name" and "phone_number" are the keys.

If we read the question again with this in mind all it's asking us to do is assign a value to the keys inside the hash.

contact = { "name" => get_name(), "phone_number" => get_phone_number() }
