Ruby Ruby Collections Ruby Hashes Working with Hash Values

what is wrong with my program

grocery_item = { "item" => "Bread", "quantity" => 1, "brand" => "Treehouse Bread Company" } grocery_item.has_value?("Bread") if grocery_item.has_value? ("Bread") grocery_item = { "item" => "Bread", "quantity" => 1, "brand" => "Treehouse Bread Company", "food" => true } end

hash.rb
grocery_item = { "item" => "Bread", "quantity" => 1, "brand" => "Treehouse Bread Company" }
grocery_item.has_value?("Bread")
if grocery_item.has_value? ("Bread")
 grocery_item = { "item" => "Bread", "quantity" => 1, "brand" => "Treehouse Bread Company", "food" => true }
end

For this challenge, you are supposed to add a key-value pair to the Hash if the Hash contained value "Bread"; you don't need to re-assign an entire new Hash to the grocery_item variable.

if grocery_item.has_value?("Bread")
  grocery_item["food"] = true
end
