Problems with working on Hash Keys.

So I 'm trying to figure out exactly what the question is trying to get out of me.. I'm pretty sure my code is entirely wrong but I've attached it just to show my confusion. I'm really appreciate some direction!


hash = { "name" => "Bread", "quantity" => 1, "calories" => 100}
if hash.has_key?("calories")
  "food" = true

Hiya there! I think you're almost there. The solution seems on point to me , except for the fact that food is a variable, not a string. The challenge mentioned it explicitly. Convert food to variable and you're good to go.
