I am totally lost

I created a new hash for the final_item, What exactly is asking me to to?

grocery_item = { "item" => "Bread", "quantity" => 1, "brand" => "Treehouse Bread Company" }
calories = { "calories" => 100 }
final_item = {}
puts final_item.merge({ 'calories' => 100 })

The challenge wants you to merge grocery_item with calories. Both are hashes. The new resulting hash needs to be named final_item. So:

final_item = grocery_item.merge(calories)
