Compiling error CS1001

i wrote it like he told me to do

using System; namespace.treehouse{ class Program { static void Main() {

    Console.Write("Skriv hvor mange minutter du har arbejdet: ");

    string tid = Console.ReadLine() + tid;

    Console.Writeline("du har motioneret " + tid + " Minutter!");


} }

Hi there, Rasmus! You're close, but not quite there. There are currently two problems in your code that I can see and one is simply a spelling error.

You wrote this:

string tid = Console.ReadLine() + tid;

This will result in a syntax error as the + tid is not needed. You should erase the + tid from that line.

When you fix that, you will be presented with yet another syntax error and this is regarding the spelling/capitalization of WriteLine vs Writeline.

You wrote:

Console.Writeline("du har motioneret " + tid + " Minutter!");

But that should be:

// Note the capitalization of the "L"
Console.WriteLine("du har motioneret " + tid + " Minutter!");

Give it a shot after you've corrected these small issues! :sparkles:
