Assignment Operator and values

Tell us what’s happening:

I am lost not sure what they mean by
Assign the contents of a to variable b
a = b is clearly wrong but I am stuck
= is the way of assigning Eh?

Your code so far

// Setup
var a;
var b = 2;

// Only change code below this line
a = 7
b = a
a = b

Link to the challenge:

a = 7 assigns 7 to a.
b = a assigns the value of a to b, which is what it’s asking for.
Then you have a = b which assigns the value of b to a. The challenge doesn’t ask for this. They’re already they same value, anyway.

edit: Oh, you’re missing semicolons.
