Challenge: Assigning the Value of One Variable to Another
Link to the challenge:
The failing test says:
a should be assigned to
The relevant code is this:
a = b;
That is doing the opposite of what you want. The assignment operator (
=) takes whatever the right side evaluates to (in other cases it could be a more complicated formula) and places it in the memory location on the left side.
What you have is saying, “assign b to a” or “take the contents of b and store it in a”. I think the “assign” terminology is a little obtuse, but it is what it is.
Does that help?
