I have tried this several different ways and I keep throwing multiple errors. I am having a hard time figuring out the fix and it is frustrating because I’m sure it is something simple!

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!!

The variable declarations should come before the story variable declaration. (Because all those variables can’t be assigned if they have no previous value).
