JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Working with Classes in JavaScript Adding methods to classes

stringGPA

I Need a little Assistance with this one.

adding_methods.js
class Student {
    constructor(gpa, stringGPA){
        this.gpa = gpa;
        this.stringGPA = stringGPA;
    }
  stringGPA (){
    return toString(this.gpa);

  }
}

const student = new Student(3.9);

You're close, but "toString" is not a function. It's a method you would call using dot notation:

    return this.gpa.toString();

And following on from Steven, that expression is Object Oriented Javascript.

Object.toString() is just what you are building for Student.stringGPA()

Lots of base things like arrays and objects have these kinds of properties. It blew my mind when I realised this.

another example is Array.length

Thank you very much, got it! Was a little bit off but its sorted now thank you.
