Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Find the Length of a String

Link to the challenge:

The instructions start:

“Use the .length property…”

You have not used the length property to set lastNameLength. You just hard-coded the length with a number. You have used the length property in the console.log below though. So why don’t you do the same thing for setting the value of lastNameLength?

The length of a string in JavaScript can be found using the . length property . Since . length is a property it must be called through an instance of a string class.
