Hi Brenda,

This Code Challenge is asking you to write a for-in loop that, for all the numbers between 1 and 10 inclusive, multiplies each number by six and then appends that number to the results array, which is an array of type Int.

In your code above, however, you're trying to multiply an empty array by six, which isn't quite what you're being asked to do. As far as I know, even if the array were full of numbers, you still wouldn't be able to multiply it by anything unless you treat each index item separately.

This passed for me in the Code Challenge, for both parts:

var results: [Int] = []

for multiplier in 1...10 {
  let correctAnswer = multiplier * 6

For every multiplier in the range between 1 and 10, I'm assigning the value of that to a constant I created, correctAnswer, and then appending that to the results array. There are a few ways you can do this, but this worked for me. Hope that helps!
