<Below this line, add a link to the EXACT exercise that you are stuck at.>
We Made a Friend!

<Below this line, in what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>
Oops, try again. It looks like there are still only two items in the contacts array.
ReferenceError: ‘firstName’ is undefined



var bob = {
    firstName: "Bob",
    lastName: "Jones",
    phoneNumber: "(650) 777-7777",
    email: "bob.jones@example.com"
};

var mary = {
    firstName: "Mary",
    lastName: "Johnson",
    phoneNumber: "(650) 888-8888",
    email: "mary.johnson@example.com"
};


function printPerson(person) {
    console.log(person.firstName + " " + person.lastName);
}

function list() {
	var contactsLength = contacts.length;
	for (var i = 0; i < contactsLength; i++) {
		printPerson(contacts[i]);
	}
}

/*Create a search function
then call it passing "Jones"*/
var search = function(lastName){
    var contactsLength = contacts.length;
    for (var i = 0; i < contactsLength; i++){
        if(contacts[i].lastName === lastName) {
           printPerson(contacts[i]);
        }
    }
}

function add(firtsName, lastName, email, phoneNumber){
    contacts[contacts.length] = {
        firstName: firstName,
        lastName: lastName,
        email: email,
        phoneNumber: phoneNumber
    };
}
add("1", "2", "3", "4");

list();

here:

function add(firtsName, lastName, email, phoneNumber){

you misspelled firstName, so then `firstName is undefined later on

I did correct the TYPO but still not running . it is showing this error:
Oops, try again. Make sure the contacts array still exists. Your code threw the following error when checking contacts: ReferenceError: ‘contacts’ is undefined


#4

where did you contacts array go? You added earlier, it should still be present. Revisit the exercise where you add the contacts array if you have to
