I am having trouble with the following question. I know it is pretty simple but I am just stuck.

I keep getting the error - Bummer! Was expecting 'me.age' to be a 'number' not 'object'.

Javascript - Objects - Stage 6

Add to the 'me' object a key of "age" and set it to your age, not as a string, but a number.

var me = { name: "jordan", 
                age: ["20"] };

1 Answer

Nevermind, I have solved it myself.

I just needed to change ["20"] to 20

That's correct, and great work debugging and fixing it on your own! Keep two things in mind for the future:

  1. When you assign a value to a key using the square brackets [ ], you're saying that you want that key to hold an array inside of it
  2. When you put quotation marks " " around a value, you're declaring it as a string

Happy coding!
