Hi there,

You need to use the put() method on the values variable using dot notation. Pass in the key & value separated by a comma.

You have three key/value pairs, so you need to do this three times. It will look like this:

ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
values.put("name", "Rover");
values.put("type", "dog");
values.put("breed", "mixed");
