Increment a Number with JavaScript (++)

Tell us what’s happening:
Hey people, I am brand new here and running into some noob issues… While trying to complete the basic ++ operator challenge… I understand that the point of the exercise to eliminate the = however the instructions state the code with the equal sign should not be modified. From my point of view the instructions are conflicting since the sum can only equal 89. I would appreciate any help I can get so I can continue my journey.


Your code so far
‘’'var myVar = 87;

// Only change code below this line

myVar = myVar + 1;

myVar++;

myVar–
‘’’

It seems you are misinterpreting the instructions, you need to remove that line

myVar = myVar + 1 should be changed

you need to remove the myVar = myVar + 1 line. :wink:
also, what’s the myVar--; doing there?
