Challenge: Use Destructuring Assignment to Assign Variables from Arrays

Your code should work even if someone changed the first line to use different values for a and b.

Also, you shouldn’t use const to re-declare a and b.

but if we were to swap only these two specific values, it would work right?

No. You have hard coded two specific numbers. That doesn’t work in general. You need to switch the values in a and b without knowing beforehand what numbers are in there and hard coding the results.
