Can someone please look at my code? Not sure why it is asking the "What the item is called? And How much?" 3 times?

Hi,

I followed along with the video, and did my code. Not sure why it is asking the question "What is the item called? And how much?" 3 different times?

I am including my code. I would appreciate it if someone could please look at it.

Thank you

def create_list print "What is the list name? " name = gets.chomp hash = { "name" => name, "items" => Array.new } return hash end

def add_list_item print "What is the item called? " item_name = gets.chomp

print "How much? " quantity = gets.chomp.to_i

hash = { "name" => item_name, "quantity" => quantity } return hash end

def print_separator(character="-") puts character * 80

end

def print_list(list) puts "List: #{list['name']}" print_separator()

list["items"].each do |item| puts "\tItem: " + item['name'] + "\t\t\t" + "Quantity: " + item['quantity'].to_s end

print_separator() end

list = create_list()

puts "Great! Add some items to your list."

list['items'].push(add_list_item()) list['items'].push(add_list_item()) list['items'].push(add_list_item())

puts "Here's your list:\n" print_list(list)

You have this line calling the function three times:

list['items'].push(add_list_item()) list['items'].push(add_list_item()) list['items'].push(add_list_item())

Should probably just be this:

list['items'].push(add_list_item())
