**Tell us what’s happening:**

I tried to have a go at this challenge earlier but couldn’t solve it. Now I came back and looked at the hints and I’m not sure if I understand the advice they give.

Hint #1: I get that I would want an array of Roman Numerals as this would be the array that I would join together with the .join() method and I would return this. The second array they say to create with the decimal equivlents should be the place values of the parameter number?

If my number was 1943

Like this: [1000, 900, 40, 3]

I seriously want to finish these challenges so I can move on to the front-end certifications. I finished the palindrome and casaer’s cipher

**Your code so far**

```
function convertToRoman(num) {
return num;
}
convertToRoman(36);
```
