How do you get the answer if you are stuck on various tasks?

Hi all, Ive only started using Treehouse since yesterday. I have doing a task that i'm stuck on and don't see anyway of getting the answer. Do you know of any feature where it gives you the answer?

Ah, so the challenge wants you to make sure the platform that's created on line 24 is pushed 100 pixels down from where it's currently being created.

Looking at line 24, it's important to know that the first two values passed to the create function (300, 100) are in order first for horizontal position and second for vertical position. Knowing that, we know we need to modify the second number to change the vertical position.

Rendering starts at 0 in the top left corner and we add to go down and to the right. So you'll need to change the second value passed to the create function on line 24 to 200.

platforms.create(300, 200, 'platform');

I hope this helps.

Hello Desmond,

Welcome to Treehouse! We're glad to have you coding with us :)

I'm not aware of a feature like that. If you need help you can always ask your question here in the community and we'll be happy to help! If you need help for a particular course video, look for the "Get Help" button and that should prompt you to create a new question that will be linked to the video.

I hope this helps. Always feel free to ask us questions.

Happy Coding

Thank you. It is task 1 of 2 (javascript)

Modify the platform.create command on line 24 to move the platform 100 pixels down, making the new coordinates (300, 200). You can click the Preview button to see what the game looks like. Click the Editor button to return to the code editor.

I'd also like to add that the Community has a search function to view previous threads to see if any other individuals have posted about it beforehand and you might be able to find an immediate answer supplemented with an explanation. Often, searching the exact string of words of the task's directions, name, or an error message will yield some past results that are helpful.

Thanks for your efforts!
