users w/ the last name "Hinkley" or "Pettit", SELECT * FROM users WHERE last_name = "Hinkley" OR "Pettit" returns an X?

I believe this to be the correct SQL statement for the query but I keep getting a Bummer! response?

i think you need last_name = 'Hinkley' or *last_name = *'Pettit' instead of just having the Pettit hanging out there. you might also try WHERE last_name IN ('Hinkley', 'Pettit').

Thank you for the help! Adding OR last_name = Pettit was what I was missing.
