Python Python Sequences Sequence Operations Creating Slices

I don't know what is wrong

i wrote this code:

sliced_gpas=[] sliced_gpas=student_gpas[3:5]

slices.py
student_gpas = [4.0, 2.3, 3.5, 3.7, 3.9, 2.8, 1.5, 4.0]
sliced_gpas=[]
sliced_gpas=student_gpas[3:5]

Lists in python are indexed starting at 0, so here you would want to start slicing at index value 2 in order to get the 3rd value in the list like so:

student_gpas = [4.0, 2.3, 3.5, 3.7, 3.9, 2.8, 1.5, 4.0]
sliced_gpas = student_gpas[2:5]
