I cant understand what was supposed to go in the code there
can ayone help?

Your code so far

class MyComponent extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.state = {
      activeUsers: null
  componentDidMount() {
    setTimeout( () => {
        activeUsers: 1273
    }, 2500);
  render() {
    return (
        <h1>Active Users: {/* code to be written*/ }</h1>

Link to the challenge:

You want to visualize the data stored in the variable activeUsers from the state

but i think i don’t understand how to pass it
could you be more specific?

You’re asked to display the variable activeUsers - you can recall it from the state.
If you don’t know how to recall a variable available into the store i suggest yo have a look at this challenge: FCC - Create a stateful component

you should write: {this.state.activeUsers}

I kinda wish that every “get hint” had a reference to the appropriate lesson like this just did. It helped me solve this problem in 2seconds on my own.
