named constant

I don't understand why the compiler is saying I'm not assigning the value of the 5th item in the index to a constant named value... That's exactly what I'm doing. At least that what I think I'm doing. LOL

// Enter your code below
var arrayOfInts: [Int] = [1,2,3,4,5,6]
arrayOfInts += [8]

let namedValue:Int = arrayOfInts[4]

Hi Kyle Melton,

Your right! However they require that you use the variable names which they mentioned in the question so:

let value:Int = arrayOfInts[4]

I hope this helped!
