JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Storing and Tracking Information with Variables Using String Methods

Am I not doing it correctly?

Can anyone point out where i have gone wrong? i need to add the var = id (in uppercase) a # and then var =lastName (uppercase) altogether

var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName = "Smith";

var userName = id.toUpperCase();
var userName = "#" + "lastName.toUpperCase"();
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

You have the right idea but you're overriding the value of the variable. What you're looking for is:

var userName = id.toUpperCase() + '#' + lastName.toUpperCase();

If you were to console.log(userName); the way you did, it would only print #SMITH

Thank you Chris you are very kind for helping me! I am struggling to correctly use ; " ect..... i need more time to practice the syntax i guess. I see you have 25000 points on Tree house, do you mind me asking how long you have been using treehouse? hope you have a great day :)
