Increment a Number with JavaScript (Help!)

Tell us what’s happening:
I just can’t pass this exercise :frowning:
missed this two checklist

myVar should equal 88
myVar = myVar + 1; should be changed
Your code so far

var myVar = 87;

// Only change code below this line
var myVar = 88; myVar++;

myVar++ is shorthand for myVar = myVar + 1
So you are first assigning the value of 88 to your variable and then incrementino it by one, in this way your variable reach 89!

Instead you need to use the shorthand only to arrive at 88
