Stuck here. myVar = myVar + 1 needs to be changed

Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far

var myVar = 87;

// Only change code below this line

myVar = myVar + 1;
myVar = myVar++;

Link to the challenge:

If you just want to pass the challenge, you should delete the first line with “myVar= MyVar + 1” since

the guideline tell you "myVar = myVar + 1; should be changed"

Also you could improve ‘myVar = myVar++’ // It could be shorter.

Kind regards,

If you do this and check the value of myVar afterward, it will still be the same
Remember, myVar++ is the shorthand version of myVar = myVar + 1

The entire line becomes i++; , eliminating the need for the equal sign.
