Help with change variables value #26

please help i don't know// On line 2,

declare a variable myName and give it your name.
var myName = abdoul
// On line 4, use console.log to print out the myName variable.
console.log myName ()
// On line 7, change the value of myName to be just the first 2
// letters of your name.

// On line 9, use console.log to print out the myName variable.

what to do


Do you think you could add your code and explain where specifically you got code? Include the error you're receiving also if possible.


Well remember, "myName" is a string, that means you have to wrap the value in quotation marks.

var myName = "abdoul";

Remember also, that console.log statements are in the parenthesis:

console.log(myName); //myName is a variable, not a string, no quotation marks needed!

In the lessons previous to this it showed how to take the first couple letters out of your name with the ".substring" method.

myName = myName.substring(0,2);

Then it wants you to console.log your name again (use the same variable as above).

You're close, just a little bit off the mark. I hope this helps! :+1:


thx man..................


Does that help? or would you like me to explain it a little more in depth? I can do that for you if you'd like.


no thx i get it ,im on #27 now conclution part 1


Try taking the quotation marks off of "myColor" in the console.log statement. It's a variable, so if you put quotation marks around the variable it actually makes it a string (or a word) instead of using the word stored inside of the variable myColor which is equal to "gray".


i did not work..................


Could you post your new code for me to see?
