The challenge only wants the command that you would enter, so don't include the "Command Prompt: $ " part.

hiya Aaron! Is it a challenge question or you tried to install mocha on your local machine and it failed? If you're running it on your local machine try running via Bower, like this

$ bower install mocha

Make sure of version of mocha and it dependencies. To install Mocha v3.0.0 or newer with npm, you will need npm v1.4.0 or newer. Additionally, to run Mocha, you will need Node.js v0.10 or newer. Do that and you're good to go.

But ideally "npm install --global mocha" should work. Maybe try it without the global flag. "npm install mocha". I hope it helped. (:

its npm install mocha -g
