Necesitas tener piernas fuertes

Necesitas tener piernas fuertes

To translate " you need to have strong legs", I put "hay que tener piernas fuertes" and it was marked wrong. I understand that "Necesitas tener piernas fuertes" is correct but don't understand why mine was wrong?

Using hay que is correct but I think the translation wanted you to to use the subject pronoun tú rather than the the impersonal verb haber which would be one must or it is necessary to.

Hola Peter 

Your sentence is correct too. I added it to the other possible correct answers. We haven't specified on the hint to "only use necesitar" so this is another alternative. 

Un saludo
