You have your var a assigned to 7 so this is correct. However, you do not need to assigned var b to 7 as the exercise is not asking you to do this. For assigning the contents of a to variable b, remember that everything to the right of the assignment operator (=) is resolved first. Therefore, you’ll want to assign b = a.

A simplified explanation:

var a; means Please give me some space to store some data in it and let me refer with "a" to it

a = 5; means Please put the value 5 into the space, the "a" refers to

var a = 5; means Please give me some space to store some data in it and let me refer with "a" to it. Then put the value 5 into this space..
