Challenge: Declare JavaScript Variables

Link to the challenge:

The tests say:
You should declare myName
Not assign it. (You’ve also assigned a variable twice which will cause an error.)
Also note the capitalization of the variable name with the hint they give you:

var ourName;

When you declare a variable, all you are doing is telling javaScript you need a variable and you’re giving it a name. → var myName;
Notice, it has not been given a value. When you assign a variable a value, then you use the (=) equal sign → var myName = 'ethan';

Note: you cannot decalare a variable of the same name twice.
