Hi there! You've declared a new variable named Answer which is not what they're looking for. They want you to set the value of textColor. Let me show you how I did it:

textColor = (value < 0) ? "red" : "green";

This will take our textColor variable and then look at the value variable. If value is less than 0 "red" is assigned. Otherwise, "green" is assigned. Hope this helps! :sparkles:
