# Assigning results to a constant named value in Swift

Hi! I'm stuk on this challgenge:

We also learned about reading values from an array. Retrieve the 5th item (remember array indexes start at 0) and assign the result to a constant named value.

My code is:

var arrayOfInts = [1,2,3,4,5,6]

arrayOfInts.append(7) arrayOfInts += [8]

arrayOfInts[4] = "constant"

Hi Mitchell,

The problem is in your last line of code.

The challenge asks you to create a new constant called "value" and assign the 5th item of the array to the new constant.

```// Enter your code below
var arrayOfInts = [0,1,2,3,4,5]
arrayOfInts.append(6)
arrayOfInts += [7]

// Let's break it down
// Create new constant called "value"
// Set it's value to the 5th item of the integer array

let value = arrayOfInts[4]
```

I hope that helps,

Mike

PS: Thanks to the awesome resources on Team Treehouse, I just launched my first app. :-)

Where did you "value" as a key word to use? There was nothing like this used in the videos.

Was stock on this for over half hour and still don't see where I would have found the use of "value"

Hey, I stucked at the same point because I named my constant "result". Writing the name of the constant in " " might be less confusing.

So I think the task should be like this:

We also learned about reading values from an array. Retrieve the 5th item (remember array indexes start at 0) and assign the result to a constant named "value".

sometimes this stuff really confuses me! this really is getting frustrating spending 30 mins trying to figure it out! thanks for the solution

let value = arrayOfInts[4]

First I had: arrayOfInts[4] let value = arrayOfInts[4] I wrote this code because I thought that I had to show where/how I retrieved the 5th item. So I was stuck on this for ages unless I took out my first line and left the second.
