Merging Two Dictionaries Error

Hello there,

Am trying to proceed with this project, so I've created a dictionary holding each player's information, I've also created a wholistic array filled with each player's dictionary, & then I've created an empty dictionaries for each team to start filling them by players.

however when I try to add to dictionaries to each other, I get compiler error

if I used the notion += between the two dictionaries I get this error:

Binary Operator "+=" cannot be applied to two [String : String] operands

while if I used the function extend or append, I get this error:

value of type '[String : String]' has no member 'extend' or value of type '[String : String]' has no member 'append'

I don't know how to merge two dictionaries or add them to each other?

One suggestion is to Map over the key/values in the first dictionary and add them to the second dictionary. Hope this helps!

var dict1 = ["Name": "Gary", "AnotherName": "Bob"]
var dict2 = ["Website": "TreeHouse"]

dict1.map { key, value in

    dict2[key] = value

You aren't supposed to use map, filter, and reduce yet.
