JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Working with Classes in JavaScript Adding methods to classes

Need to convert value to string, but string is not defined.

"Inside the stringGPA() method, convert the value of the gpa property to a string and return it."

This is what I have so far. I tried looking up various methods of converting numbers, but none of them have worked. The thing just tells me that "gpa is not defined." I think there is a way earlier described in the course, but I am not sure where. Please help.

adding_methods.js
class Student {
    constructor(gpa){
        this.gpa = gpa;
    }
  stringGPA(){

  }
}

const student = new Student(3.9);

Just a quick shot at this. I haven't taken this course yet...

class Student {
    constructor(gpa){
        this.gpa = gpa;
    }
  stringGPA(){
    return this.gpa.toString();
  }
}
const student = new Student(3.9);
