"Basic JavaScript: Local Scope and Functions"

Hello Guys!

I have got stuck in this challenge. I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a bright light! :sweat_smile:

Thanks in advance!


Your code so far

function myLocalScope() {
'use strict';

// Only change code below this line

console.log('inside myLocalScope', myVar);
function myLocalScope() {
var myVar = "foo";


// Run and check the console
// myVar is not defined outside of myLocalScope

Hi ArielLeslie!

That is the question. I wasnโ€™t supposed to be stuck on it. I did the same in the video. I removed the part that was saying that โ€˜myVarโ€™ was outside. Maybe should be the value of 'var myVar = โ€œfooโ€; โ€™ ?

What do the instructions tell you to do? What do the failing tests say?

This part: You should add a local myVar variable.

Why did you create a second myLocalScope function inside the one that was provided?
