JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Working with Classes in JavaScript Instantiating an object

I don't understand how to write this instantiated code.

I've followed the example in the video but when I try to use the same method written. It tells me that my 'gpa' is not a constructor.

show your code

class Student { constructor(gpa){ this.gpa = gpa; } }

var Student = new Student(3.9);

Your variable shouldn't have a capitalized S. Your variable should start with a small s and the class with a capitalized S. Also if you want you could start using const/let instead of var. But that's up to you.

Like this:

const student = new Student(3.9)

NOT like this:

var Student = new Student(3.9);

Thank you.
