I am stuck on Numbers challenge 2 of 3.

The question is "Next create a constant called price and assign it the value 9.99."

I assumed it was like a string so my answer was "let price = 9.99" Turns out that is wrong and I'm not sure what I have to do to fix it. Any advice will be helpful.

let price = 9.99

The line in your code sample is perfect, that is exactly how to create a constant with a value of 9.99.

I notice in your code sample there is only one line. There are supposed to be two lines of code in task 2. Is the first line of your code correct?

You were absolutely right! I deleted the previous line and it wasn't registering that I had completed it. I have just started and so far I like the work. I may get lost again so don't be surprised if I message you with another question. Thank you for help :)

Glad I could help! Good luck and have fun with the course! (:
