Trouble with Image Based Animation Code challenge

This is my code from the 2nd task, i don't know here to go on the third task, as is is asking me to animate it now, but there is no method for me to instruct it to animate.

#import "THViewController.h"

@implementation THViewController

- (void)viewDidLoad {
    [super viewDidLoad];

    // backgroundImage is a local variable
    UIImage *backgroundImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"background"];
    // imageView is a property
    self.imageView = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithImage:backgroundImage];

    // Add your code below! 
    // Remember 'imageView' is a property 
    // so refer to it as 'self.imageView'
  self.imageView.animationImages = [[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects:
    [UIImage imageNamed:@"01"],
    [UIImage imageNamed:@"02"],
    [UIImage imageNamed:@"03"], nil];

  self.imageView.animationDuration = 5.0f;

but there is a method that tells the imageview to start animating. the method you are looking for is startAnimating of the UIImageView class

self.imageView.animationDuration = 5.0f;
  [self.imageView startAnimating];
