var a;

var b;

var c;

// Do not change code below this line

a = a + 5;

b = b + 10;

c = c + " I am a";

``````
// Initialize these three variables
var a;
var b;
var c;

// Do not change code below this line

a = a + 5;
b = b + 10;
c = c + " I am a";``````

The instructions for this challenge say: " Initialize the three variables `a` , `b` , and `c` with `5` , `10` , and `"I am a"` respectively"
