Code challenge: Modifying attributes

I am quite stuck here if anyone would help... The challenge is: In jQuery add the attribute of 'checked' with the value of 'checked' to the input with the id of 'accept'. And my code is $("#accept, input").attr("checked, checked"); can anyone see what i am doing wrong here?

I think you need to have the attribute and its value both in quotes (unless its value is a number) so you'd need to do

$("#accept").attr("checked", "checked");
