iOS Swift Basics (retired) Collections What is a Dictionary?

Hello. What is wrong with my code here? let ukCurrency = currencies.removeValueForKey("UK")

Hello The question says: Assign the value for key "UK" to a constant named ukCurrency.

my code:

let ukCurrency = currencies.removeValueForKey("UK")

can you please tell me what I am doing wrong here? and how is it supposed to be done?

dictionaries.swift
let currencies = ["US": "Dollar", "UK": "Pound", "JP": "Yen"] 
let ukCurrency = currencies.removeValueForKey("UK")

The question doesn't want you to remove the key-value pair from the dictionary, which is what your code is doing. Instead, use

let ukCurrency = currencies["UK"]

You are removing the value. The question wants you to add the value of the key to a constant. let ukCurrency = ("pound")
