Help w/ Modifying Array Data With Indexes

I am seriously stuck… any hints?

Here’s the error msg: You should be using correct index to modify the value in myArray.

Your code so far

// Example
var ourArray = [1,2,3];
ourArray[1] = 3; // ourArray now equals [1,3,3].

Modify the data stored at index 0 of myArray to a value of 3.

// Setup
var myArray = [1,2,3];

// Only change code below this line.

ourArray[0] = 3;

You have the right idea, but you’re not working on the correct array.

I found this answer on github: myArray[0] = 3; and it worked.

So it seems that an incorrect amount of spaces is the deciding factor in passing. So weird. I’ll have to do more reading to understand this.


It’s got nothing to do with the number of spaces, you’ll waste your time trying to read up on that, it’s as @kevcomedia said

the difference between the two, and why your first attempt failed, is that you were changing the array called ourArray but the question wanted you to modify myArray
