Help me please?

strings = ["HTML", "CSS", "JavaScript", "Python", "Ruby"]

symbols = []

strings.each {|s| s.to_sym.push(symbols)}

The goal is to convert the strings in the string array into symbols and add them to the symbols array. Everytime i try this its tells me that the html symbol isnt factoring. Here is the link.

HI Alphonse,

You want to call push on the symbols array and pass it the string converted to a symbol; the way you have it, push is being called on the string, converted to a symbol.

strings.each {|s| symbols.push(s.to_sym)}
