Can't get <img> tag to display images. Help!

Having a hard time seeing what is wrong here. Looks like a lot of people seem to get stuck here too. I've tried quite a few things including trying it with <img/numbers-01.jpeg> and without the "img" <numbers-01.jpeg>

In my Workspace Preview the images haven't been showing up at all. Completely blank :/

Does anyone see what's going on? Thanks!

add an "="(without the quotes) after the "alt". Also make sure to have the pictures on the path of the src.

Ok, tried: alt= (without "") and alt="". Still not letting me through :(

I have gotten the code to work, although I'm not sure it was the code that was wrong...

This is what I used: <img src="numbers-01.jpg" alt="">

But it's what I've been trying all along (even trying it alt=> without the "" and alt"" without the "=" as seen above. So, what happened is I restarted the lesson again, tried it, and I don't know why, but it worked.

A glitch maybe?

You need the alt="" and to close your img tags

<img src="numbers-01.jpeg" alt="" />
