I'd recommenced writing down the question in your own words and think about it like a basic math question when you get stuck on something like this. Chunk it out, what exactly do they want. From the looks of the code you might be thinking too much about what is needed. Not trying to be mean, but this is something you should be able to figure out re-watching previous videos.
