Help with first tutorial

I was following the getting started guide and got all the way to the step where it says to run:

ionic serve

At first, it did not work because I didn’t have angular installed. Once I installed that I tried again and get this error:

mikej@DESKTOP-615AL5R MINGW64 ~/Desktop/Ionic/myApp
$ ionic serve

ng run app:serve --host=0.0.0.0 --port=8100

[ERROR] ng has unexpectedly closed (exit code 1).

    The Ionic CLI will exit. Please check any output above for error details.

Try in your Terminal:

npm install --save-dev @angular-devkit/build-angular

or,

yarn add @angular-devkit/build-angular --dev
