I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

sorry for late response.
this is the assignment:

Use the .length property to count the number of characters in the lastName variable and assign it to lastNameLength .

You did that when you wrote:

lastNameLength = lastName.length;

However, then you wrote:

lastNameLength = lastName;

so the final value of lastNameLength is the same value as lastName. In this case, that value is Lovelace instead of the length of lastName.
