My Error:
Sorry, your code does not pass. Try again.

You should initialize the xp variable to 0. Don’t forget the semi-colon at the end of the line.

My instructions:

Step 7

Variables can be assigned a value. When you do this while you declare it, this is called initialization. For example:

let camperbot = "Bot";

This would initialize the camperbot variable with a value of Bot, a string.

Initialize your xp variable to have a value of 0, a number.

My code:
let xp = “0”;

Nevermind! I see it doesn’t need the quotations.

I created an issue yesterday to update the example to use numbers instead of strings because you aren’t the first to make that mistake.
I think the updated example will make it clearer what the given value should be.
Plus strings haven’t really been taught yet so it is best to just stick with numbers for now.

Thanks, yes that would be very helpful
