Hi Kent,

You're on the right trail but have slightly incorrect code, the pop method in Python accepts a value in which is an index offset, what this means is starting from zero we can remove a value in the array and store it in a local variable, insert works in a similar way where we specify an index offset but it accepts a second parameter which is the number 1 that we popped out of the array earlier.

See the below.

value = the_list.pop(3)
the_list.insert(0, value)

Happy coding!
