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

So you'll need a return statement to pass back the final value. You won't need console.log in this challenge.

Also, when they say to convert the value into a sting, they don't mean for you to replace the value with a string. Instead, use one of the methods or functions that change a number into a string, and return that (but don't change the value of gpa itself).
