I have done both the 2nd and 3rd code (name “Cindy”) and var = 7. Both are coming back as incorrect. I actually copied the example for the 2nd one “Raphel” and it still gave an error. Assistance please and thank you.

“Use the var keyword to create a variable called myName.”

You don’t want to assign it a value, you just want to create a variable named myName, just like they created the variable ourName in the instructions.

In your code above your created the variable ourName instead and mistakenly assigned it a value.
