I remember needing some help on this answer as well! The code is as follows. Note that you merge grocery_item with calories by appending merge to it (that was the part that was confusing to me).

final_item = grocery_item.merge( calories )

grocery_item = { "item" => "Bread", "quantity" => 1, "brand" => "Treehouse Bread Company" }

final_item = grocery_item.merge({ "calories" => 100 })

This works now
