C# C# Objects Encapsulation and Arrays Arrays

I don't know what to do with task 4. Help

Saying missing the"="

CodeChallenge.cs
double[] lapTimes = new double[4];
lapTimes[0] = 2.2;
double[] finalLapTimes = {2.2, 2.3, 2.5, 2.8}; 
finalLapTimes[3] = lap3;

1 Answer

The challenge directions are

Set lap3 to the value in the third item of the finalLapTimes array.

In your code, the value of a variable lap3 becomes the value of the third fourth item of the array, changing the value of the array. The challenge is expecting you to define a variable lap3 and initialize it using the value in the array, leaving the value of the array unchanged.

I tried but it's not working.

Correction, the third item of the array would be finalLapTimes[2] and not finalLapTimes[3].
