I have a doubt in this lesson of variables of yours.I am a newbie so pls, do understand me.
In this example what is the difference between this
var = "50,000"
var = 50,000
and why is the latter an error.
Is it that commas are only allowed in a string when declaring it.
Can you post a link to your exercise so we can have a look?
In your case, I think you’ve been missing a variable name?
var ???= “50,000”;
Let’s say you have given it a name:
var myLuckyNumber = "50,000";
The “50,000” is a string value. Just like a text, it does not contain numerical value.
if you write it this way:
var myLuckyNumber = 50000;
The 50000 is a number type data. It contains numerical value. You can have mathematical operation with it. Just don’t put comma in between, just numbers, simply because commas aren’t numbers.
Hope this helps
