When I type in = I get "Correct". So I'm not sure why you are encountering an issue?



oh, I wrote the word because in previous question I also wrote out semi-colon as opposed to ; and it was accepted. Thanks

So, I went back and checked that out. If you are writing it out, equal sign will also get a correct answer. (But, "equals" or "equals sign" will not.)... I think the quiz might just be a tad picky. :)

I used equal then equals - didn't think to include "sign" - thanks, I was getting frustrated
