Your 1969 needs to be in quotes, that's all :).

Your code should look like:

NSDictionary *album = @{@"title":@"Abbey Road", @"artist":@"The Beatles"};
NSMutableDictionary *albumMutable = [NSMutableDictionary dictionaryWithDictionary: album];
[albumMutable setObject:@"1969" forKey:@"year"];

Or brackets if you want to store a number from variable or directly:

int myYear = 1969;
[albumMutable setObject:@(myYear) forKey:@"year"];   // same as @(1969)
