Did exact what shown in the help video but still can run this code

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

Your code so far

var myName = "roger";

Challenge: Declare JavaScript Variables

Link to the challenge:

That is valid JS but you actually did more than was asked:

You should declare myName with the var keyword, ending with a semicolon

You not only declared it, but you initialized it too.

// declaring a variable:
var myVar1;

// declaring and initializing with a value:
var myVar2 = 123;

You were supposed to only declare it, not initialize it. (I assume they’ll cover that next or soon.)

When I remove the initialization, your code passes for me.
