Hi Tegar Putra

You're on the right track. :thumbsup: There are just a few small errors:

  1. Integer values cannot have punctuation in them, so the value needs to be 2211000000,
  2. Properties and their values are separated with a colon. Values are not assigned with the equal sign as with variables.
  3. Remove the semicolon you have after the final Property/Value. A semi-colon signifies the end of a statement, but that isn't the end. The curly brace is.

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:

Thank you Jason ... that's solve my code quiz !!
