converting a number to a string inside of a method??

The question asks me to convert the gpa to a string inside of the stringGPA method...I'm not sure where I'm going wrong and I am well and truly stuck (fairly new to JS)

adding_methods.js
class Student {
    constructor(gpa){
      this.gpa = gpa
  }

  stringGPA(string) {
    string = "'" + this.gpa + '"'
  }

}

const student = new Student(3.9);

Hi James,

Try the num.toString(); method for that. See the example below:

Hope i could help you & have a nice Day!

class Student {
    constructor(gpa){
        this.gpa = gpa;
    }

  stringGPA() {
    return this.gpa.toString()
  }

}

const student = new Student(3.9);
