I am just confused as to why nothing is showing up at all to start manipulating it I deffinatley have this formula wrong

Your code so far


<body>
  <script>
    const dataset = [12, 31, 22, 17, 25, 18, 29, 14, 9];
    
    const w = 500;
    const h = 100;
    
    const svg = d3.select("body")
                  .append("svg")
                  .attr("width", w)
                  .attr("height", h);
    
    svg.selectAll("rect")
       .data(dataset)
       .enter()
       .append("rect")
       .attr("x", (d, i) => i * 30)
       .attr("y", (d, i) => h - 3 * d)
       .attr("width", 25)
       .attr("height", (d, i) => 3 * d)
       .attr("fill", "navy");
    
    svg.selectAll("text")
      .data("dataset")
      .enter()
      .append("text")
       // Add your code below this line
      .attr("x", (d, i) => i * 30)
       .attr("y", (d) => i + 3)
      .attr("fill", "red")
      .text(d)
       
     
       
       // Add your code above this line
  </script>
<body>

Some things to note in the selectAll part for the text:

  • You typed "dataset". You might have meant dataset (without the quotes).
  • In .attr("y", you used an i variable but you forgot to include it in the parameter list.
  • In .text(), d is just a plain variable that’s not declared anywhere. If you intend to display the current data point, use d => d.

The above won’t be enough to pass the exercise. You need to use the right formula for the text’s y attribute. It should be detailed in the instructions.
