Ruby Ruby Objects and Classes Variables and Methods Variables and Methods

I didn't get it why we're doing this and what's wrong with my code?

Why are we using initialize stuff? I didn't get it so I couldn't do it.

class.rb
class Name
  def initialize(title)
    @title = title
  end

  def first_name
    "Metal"
  end

  def last_name
    "Robot"
  end
end

middle_name = Name.new

Below the Name class, instantiate a new Name instance set to the variable name with any title you choose.

Hmmm ... two problems in the last line of your code.

  1. the variable should be named name according to the challenge description, not middle_name
  2. since the initialize method in the Class definition takes a title argument, it'd be a syntax error to initialize a new instance of Class without providing the title argument.
name = Name.new("whatever_name")

Hope it helps.
