iOS Swift Basics (retired) Collections What is a Dictionary?

I cannot get the code work properly for the second portion.

I've tried these methods with no avail.

dictionaries.swift
let currencies["Pound"] = "ukCurrency"

let ["ukCurrency"] = "Pound"

let ["Pound"] = "ukCurrency"

Just a pointer or a starter would work perfectly.

The new constant ukCurrency should be the only thing to left of assignment, like this:

let currencies = ["US": "Dollar", "UK": "Pound", "JP": "Yen"]

let ukCurrency = currencies["UK"]
