Problem with JQuery

I have this Bummer: Bummer! You didn't use the CDN hosted version of jQuery. Try again. What I'm doing wrong?

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Take Evasive Action</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" title="no title" charset="utf-8">
    <p class="warning">
      <span>It's A Trap!</span>
    <div class="image">
        <img src="img/ackbar.gif">
    <script src="js/app.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>
  <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.4/jquery.min.js"></script>

You should put your CDN in your head element. Your html is read from top to bottom and it runs into your app.js before it loads jquery cdn. It's a bit like trying to read a book in a language you didn't even learn yet. If my understanding is good with this you could even just reverse your 2 script tag at the end of the body element.

Hope i helped

Hi Emmanuel Jimenez,

Technically, you're not doing nothing wrong. The one you linked to is the CDN-hosted jQuery file. And you're linking to it before closing the <body>.

However, if you go on reading what the challenge is asking from you, you'll notice it says:

Find the CDN hosted jQuery javascript file on the code.jquery.com

The one you linked to is not found in code.jquery.com, but comes from Google libraries, if I'm not wrong.

This great answer from another student will guide you the right way. I know it helped me (and many others too!).

But if after taking a look at that, you remain in trouble with something, feel free to follow up right here. :)
