Stuck on the Dictionary Code Challenge within the Collections and Control Flow lessons.
I'm currently stuck on the Dictionary code challenge, specifically when it asks you to retrieve the "apple pie" value from the dictionary using it's assigned key "AP" and then assign that to a constant of "applePie". To my understanding, in the lesson we were taught to retrieve items from the dictionary by "reading" them using the dictionary name followed by ["the key"] I.E. iceCream["AP"] . I also can't remember exactly how to assign that value to a new constant. If someone could refresh my memory and look over my code, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time.
// Enter your code below var iceCream = ["CC": "Chocolate Chip", "AP": "Apple Pie", "PB": "Peanut Butter"] iceCream.updateValue ("Rocky Road", forKey: "RR") iceCream["AP"] let applePie = //iceCream ? How do I go about assigning the "Apple Pie" key to the constant "applePie"//
You were close! Here you go:
var iceCream = ["CC": "Chocolate Chip", "AP": "Apple Pie", "PB": "Peanut Butter"] iceCream.updateValue ("Rocky Road", forKey: "RR") let applePie = iceCream["AP"]
