Python Python Sequences Sequence Operations Creating Slices

Cannot seem to figure out this index for a slice. What am I doing wrong?

I'm getting sliced_gpas = student_gpas [1:5] what's wrong here? Thanks

student_gpas = [4.0, 2.3, 3.5, 3.7, 3.9, 2.8, 1.5, 4.0]

sliced_gpas = student_gpas[1:5]

The instructions ask for a slice "that includes the 3rd through the 5th elements", but a start value of 1 would begin he slice with the second element.

Got it so [2:5] thanks!
