Why is this code not passing? I have done as instructed

Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far

var myVar = 11;

// Only change code below this line
myVar = 10;
myVar = myVar--;

Challenge: Decrement a Number with JavaScript

Link to the challenge:


myVar = 10;
myVar = myVar--;

you should just write


@itsbob is right, there was a tiny mistake there. But just to make things a bit clearer for you, you could’ve done either this:

myVar = myVar - 1; //valid decrement operation

or this:

myVar--; // also valid decrement operation

Cheer mate! :+1:

Thanks guys, i was able to fix it eventually
