whats wrong with my code here task 1 of 2 in JavaScript objects

add the new line of code and set population of newYork to 8.606e6

var newYork = {
  population: 100, 
  latitude: '40.7127 N',
  longitude: '74.0059 W'
 newYork.population = '8.406e6'

The bummer message is saying "You need to set the population property to the numeric value 8.406e6."

Tapiwa, Javascript requires a semi colon ';' at the end, also what is it meant to equal '8.4' or '8.6'? Try one of the below.

newYork.population = '8.406e6';
// or
newYork.population = '8.606e6';
