Beating my head against the wall....

I have no idea on this one... did it just like she did in the video...

adding_methods.js
class Student {
    constructor(gpa , stringGPA){
        this.gpa = gpa;
        this.stringGPA = stringGPA;
    }
}

const student = new Student(3.9);

The first part is wanting you to create a new method instead of working with the constructor. Try adding the new function, stringGPA(), immediately after the constructor. The second part is wanting you to use toString(). Hopefully this can help you out without lazily giving you an answer! If not let me know.

class Student {
    constructor(gpa){
        this.gpa = gpa;
    }

    stringGPA() {

    }   
}

const student = new Student(3.9);

The prompt reads : 'Create an empty method called stringGPA() and add it to the Student class'

You're adding a property inside the constructor when you should be adding a method after the constructor function.
