Check your case and be consistent between creating the Class and creating a new instance.

It is looking for a number value not a string. Try just giving it the number 3.9

Also, be sure to capitalize the class name when calling it with new

Hi Hilary! Don't use simple paragraph in the new student, use only numbers (3.9). When you create new Student the s letter is big.

Hi, your Student class begins with a capital 'S'. So when you declare a variable the word 'student' after 'new' should start with a capital letter.

thank you very much i removed the string and it worked
