That’s my code so far

what’s your question about this code?

Step 104

After your currentWeapon, use the concatenation operator to set text.innerText to the string "You sold a ", then currentWeapon, then the string ".".

you should do it all in one line instead of two

i tried that, but still not getting it please.

show your code please

it says I sent it earlier and can’t resend it, can you please check my previous reply for it?

you said you changed your code and it wasn’t working, not that you tried with the same exact code, show your new code please

function sellWeapon() {
  if (inventory.length > 1) {
    gold += 15;
    goldText.innerText = gold;
    let currentWeapon = inventory.shift();
    text.innerText = "You sold a "+ currentWeapon+"","+ .+";
    
  }
}

i guess i’m not doing it right.

use less concatenation operators, only 2, at the end you need to only concatenate a period

I don’t really understand that, please.

what do you not understand? you only need one concat operator before the variable and one after, please show what you tried

function sellWeapon() {
  if (inventory.length > 1) {
    gold += 15;
    goldText.innerText = gold;
    let currentWeapon = inventory.shift();
    text.innerText = "You sold a "+ currentWeapon "." +"" 
  }

this is not valid, you need to have a concat operator in there

concatenating an empty string does nothing, you can avoid that
