Challenge: Assigning the Value of One Variable to Another
Link to the challenge:
You’ve flipped the order of things here
Assign the contents of
a to variable
You are assigning the contents of variable
b (on the right) into the variable
a (on the left).
Hi @lindsay.schuler !
Welcome to the forum!
When you are learning about assignment for the first time it can be a little confusing.
And it is common to switch the order.
Maybe a visual might help with the understanding.
Our task, is to assign the contents of A to variable B.
Imagine, you had a box called B and you are pouring in the contents of A into the B box.
Hopefully that helps!
As said, it’s not an uncommon mistake.
But I would suggest thinking about which variable contains a value to be the correct way of identifying the assignment order.
a contains the value
undefined. So assigning
b makes sense. But assigning
Even if the challenge did not tell you what variable to assign to just knowing which variable contains a (proper) value should be enough to hint at the assignment order.
