You’ve come to the right place. The forum is a good place to find help. The key is asking for help and not just a solution. The difference being digging into what tidbit of information you need to get back on tract!

For this challenge you’re off to a great start. Two more parts are needed:

  • get the first four characters of the parameter word. A slice will do this
  • use a return statement to pass the solution back from the function call.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

Thanks i figured it out :)
