Understanding Uninitialized Variables-stuck

Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far

// Initialize these three variables
var a = 6;
var b = 15;
var c = "I am a";

// Do not change code below this line

a = a + 1;
b = b + 5;
c = c + " String!";

I gotta say, everything up until the JS stuff was very well written,this stuff is confusing me, does anyone know what i’m doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance


Initialize the three variables a, b, and c with 5, 10, and "I am a" respectively so that they will not be undefined.

You haven’t followed these instructions.

@nightcoder21, you are initializing the variables just fine - you’re just putting the wrong values in!

What were the reasons behind you choosing these values?

var a = 6; // this assigns the value 6 to variable a. What value do you want a to have?
var b = 15;

Think through that and what the challenge is asking you to do and you’ll figure it out
