We can add to a hash two ways: if we created it using literal notation, we can simply add a new key-value pair directly between the curly braces. If we used Hash.new, we can add to the hash using bracket notation:

pets = Hash.new pets["Stevie"] = "cat" # Adds the key "Stevie" with the # value "cat" to the hash



Add a pet to your pets hash. It can be any key-value pair you like!
