JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Working with Classes in JavaScript Instantiating an object

Creating or trying to a new instance of class Student.

Challenge Task 1 of 1 Create a variable called student. Set it equal to a new instance of class Student. The student object should be instantiated with a gpa of 3.9.

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

class Student {

You need a space between new and Student to declare a new instance so: var student = new Student(3.9);
