You're given the line compile 'com.teamtreehouse.treehttp:treehttp:1.0.0' to put in the build.gradle file to add the library to your app. It should go inside the dependencies block with the other two compile statements.

still not getting it

dependencies { compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar']) compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:21.0.2' compile 'com.teamtreehouse.treehttp:treehttp:1.0.0' }
