Hi Brenda,

You see we already have key ("name" and "phone_number") there but values of the method*(" ")* are missing.

contact = {"name" => ".......", "phone_number" => "........" }

Here's simple to add value of the method get_name() first inside contact.


contact_list = []

contact = {"name" => get_name(), "phone_number" => "" }

Now next you have to add value of the method for phone number.

Hope that helps. ;)

contact_list = []

contact = {"name" => "", "phone_number" => "" }

contact["name"] = get_name()

hash["key"] = value

where hash is contact, key is name, value is get_name()
