So, we're going to use this counties …array, with a few counties in it, for demonstration purposes. …If I want to get a specific item from an array, I need to retrieve it using the …square braces notation we saw with objects. …So. Counties, and I'll use the square braces. …Although arrays are technically objects, the dot notation will not work.…

So two, we go from zero, one, two, and we …get Carol. And just a descriptive note, the two here …is the index, and you'll hear that item referred to as, in this case, counties …indexed two, or sometimes counties sub two.…
