Hi Frank. Yes it is. But to complete the challenge make sure you add a $ for the price.

Add a dollar sign where? I've tried and it's still not working.

In front of the dollar sign you have for price. It’s confusing because ${price} is the format to add the variable to a string literal. So to get a dollar sign for the price to display $4.99 you need $${price}
