how to find evens and then reverse the list - I couldn't figure out how to do a second change to the iterable

without creating a new variable - but that seems to have thrown more of a wrench into the situation - any advice / hints would be apprecaited.

thank you

slices.py
```def first_4(iterable):
return iterable[:4]

def first_and_last_4 (iterable):
a = iterable[:4]
b = iterable[-4:]
c = (a+b)
return c

def odds(iterable):
return iterable[1::2]

reverse_evens(iterable):
#this step creates a new list to hold the even indexed items
evens_slice[] = iterable[::2]
#this step reverses the list and returns it
return evens_slice[::-1]
```

MOD

You are so close! If you get rid of the square brackets on the left-hand side of the equal sign, it should work for you.

```reverse_evens(iterable):
#this step creates a new list to hold the even indexed items
# evens_slice[] = iterable[::2]
evens_slice = iterable[::2] # here is the change
#this step reverses the list and returns it
return evens_slice[::-1]
```

thank you Jeff, I could've sworn that was the first thing I tried ... but it definitely worked this time!
