Challenge Task 1 of 2

Code the AddWord method such that, WordCount will contain the number of times the AddWord method has been called with a given word.

For example, if AddWord is called twice with the word "rock" then WordCount["rock"] will be 2.

using System.Collections.Generic;

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
    public class LexicalAnalysis
        public Dictionary<string, int> WordCount = new Dictionary<string, int>();

        public void AddWord(string word)
            if (WordCount.ContainsKey(word))
                WordCount.Add(word, 1);

It looks like you did a good job on task 1 :+1:

For task 2, here's a few hints about what your WordsWithCountGreaterThan method should have:

  • it should create a new Dictionary variable
  • it should have a loop to iterate the Wordcount
  • it should compare the count of each word to the passed-in argument
  • it should add both the word and the count to the new dictionary when the criterion is met
  • it should return the newly-created dictionary
