Hi all!

I'm very green at coding and need help with the validation rule in the Creating Validation Rules module. I am lost, i don't know where to start with coding it. Help!

I know it is confusing, but the best place to get validation rule help is the regular success community Answers section - https://success.salesforce.com

The best place I can advise you to start is the Trailhead validation section:
https://developer.salesforce.com/trailhead/point_click_business_logic/validation_rules
This will walk you through creating validation rules. 

Also here are some example validation rules:

Once you get a hang of how they work it is easier to write your own.
