The instructions say to " print 'Begin program' to the browser's JavaScript console". Here's a couple of hints:

  • the nave of the function that does this is "console.log"
  • what you want to print is a string, so the words should be enclosed in quotes

Thank you Steven. I figured it out. I had to put console.log();
