Please help and kindly explain

Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far

// Setup
var a;
var b = 2;

// Only change code below this line

Assign the value 7 to variable a.

Assign the contents of a to variable b.

**Challenge:** Storing Values with the Assignment Operator

What have you tried? What do you have questions about?

Everything, What does Assign contents of a to b mean?

After you assign a value to a, that value can be referred to as "the contents of a".

var a = 87; // the variable a now contains 87

so in this case I should type b = 7; but when I do it gives error and the correct answer is b = a, but it should say b = 7 because it assign the contents of a?

That would just be assigning 7 to b. You need to use the variable a to assign it’s value to b. If you look at the example code in the lesson, it explains how to assign one variable to the value of another.

Okay thank you very much, I really appreciate your help, I got it now.

Congratulations. Happy coding!
