Basic JavaScript - Increment a Number with JavaScript

Look at the console pane. It is telling you there is something wrong with your code.

You can’t increment a number like that. The ++ operator can only be used with a variable.

Read the instructions closely again:

i++;

is the equivalent of

i = i + 1;

The instructions are using the variable i. The challenge is using the variable myVar. Can you see the similarity?
