Storing Values with the Assignment Operator Question

Tell us what’s happening:
I have no clue why this is not working… from what I previously know, this is right.

Your code so far

// Setup
var a;
var b = 2;

// Only change code below this line
var a = 7
var b = a

Your browser information:

Link to the challenge:

Because in the Setup part, a and b are declared. So in your codes, you do not need to declare the two variables with the key word ‘var’ any more.

once i took out the var, it still doesn’t work

I suggest using semi-colons. It is a good habit. I passed with the following.

Yea, I tried this initially too but it still does not let me pass… Thanks for the semi-colon advice

Maybe reset your code and try again?

From your initial screenshot it appears there could be an extra new line before the // Setup comment.

I think it was the use of the semi colon that kept me from moving on. I re-loaded the page and used semmi-colons this time and it worked, thanks for your help!
