Hi Stephen!

I haven't tested it, but I suspect that your issue is the semicolon after document.getElementById("root").

Instead of this:

ReactDOM.render(
  title,
  document.getElementById("root");
);

Try this:

ReactDOM.render(
  title,
  document.getElementById("root")
);

I think that will fix it - but I'm not sure (try it, anyway, though).

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!

Thank you Peter Vann! It worked
