need help with parenting

I have been working on the BlenderChar hand setup tutorial.

I cannot figure out how to parent the arm to the armature.

my blender file

any help would be appreciated, thanks

All you need to do is…

Basic Parenting:

Go to OBJECT mode and Right-Click the “skin”, or mesh, so that it is pink.
Press and HOLD the Shift Key and right-Click the bones, they also become a shade of pink.

Both objects are now pink.

Next, press Ctrl+P and select ‘Parent’, then choose closest to bones.

Now, with this knowledge, your Arm Tutorial will make more sense, because they are doing basically the same thing, but refining exactly which part of the skin is parented to the correct bone.
