Retrieve the 5th item (remember array indexes start at 0) and assign the result to a constant named value.

Not sure why the following is wrong?

array.swift
// Enter your code below
var arrayOfInts = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
arrayOfInts.append(7)
arrayOfInts += [8]
let fifthItem = arrayOfInts[4]

Your code runs smoothly, but the challenge asks you to name the constant assigned the fifth item value, not fifthItem. Fix that and you'll be good to go!
