Hi Erika,

From the error you received, it looks like you are calling ruby runner.rb from the wrong directory in the console. You need to be in the root directory of the ruby file in order for the command to execute.


i am but the thing now is that when a watched a treehouse course i saw save and now all i had to do was save and it now works
