iOS Swift Collections and Control Flow Introduction to Collections Working With Arrays

My code doesn't work! Please, help!

Retrieve the 5th item (remember array indexes start at 0) and assign the result to a constant named value.

What's wrong with the code?

array.swift
// Enter your code below
var arrayOfInts: [Int] = [10,15,20,25,30,40]
arrayOfInts.append(55)
arrayOfInts += [1]

let fifthItem = arrayOfInts[4]

Hi, Mikhail! Your code is syntactically fine, however, it does not meet the requirements of the challenge instructions. The instructions state to retrieve the fifth item and assign it to a constant named value, but you've named your constant fifthItem. Simply changing the constant name from fifthItem to value will cause this to pass Step 3.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
