Try moving console.log("Begin program") to the app.js tab.

To end a line of code in JavaScript, you can use ; rather than . You also don't need multiple <body> elements in the HTML file, although the challenge does not check this.

how can I move it to the app.js tab?

There are two tabs directly above the line <!DOCTYPE HTML> and underneath the challenge instructions. The one on the left is labeled index.html and the one on the right is labeled app.js. Try clicking on the word app.js.
