Are you finding the length of the *string* cake, or a *variable* called cake?

If it was the first one:

`"cake".length;`

and the second:

```
var cake = "chocolate";
cake.length;
```

Same problem as nightrider556. Found the length, but page still shows "error" and won't let me continue. Here are the instructions:

**Instructions****The computer will ignore the code on lines 1-2, since it is commented out.**

**On line 3, find the length of the word "cake".**

And here's my code:

- // This is a comment that the computer will ignore.
- // It is for your eyes only!
- "cake" .length

Returns result "4" which is correct, but page also returns:

Oops, try again. Did you find the length of "cake"?. Click "Stuck? Get a hint!" for an example.
