It says Task 1 is no longer passing
When I enter my appended and concatenated arrays it will not let me move on to the next part of the task stating that "Task 1 is no longer passing" (Task one was to declare a variable named arrayOfInts and assign 6 numbers to it)
When I do this in playground it does not say this. Is this an actual issue or just a treehouse glitch?
// Enter your code below var arrayOfInts: [Int] = [1,2,3,4,5,6] arrayOfInts.append(7) arrayOfInts = arrayOfInts + [8,9,]

Hi there! This is neither a syntactical error nor is it the result of a "glitch" in Treehouse. It is simply a misunderstanding of the instructions. After you use the
append method to add an item, there is another instruction:
Next, add another item to the array by concatenating an array. When concatenating, assign the results of the expression back to arrayOfInts.
You're doing the concatenation just fine, but you're adding two additional elements to the array where it only asked for one. Also, the trailing comma inside the brackets is not needed. Changing the
 causes this code to pass the second step.
Hope this helps!
