JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Working With Numbers Storing Numbers in Variables

Anyone help with this? My eyes are dead at this point. Have less than two hour deadline to answer these last few.

I've tried all sorts of things.

script.js
var name = {
  name: "Chris";
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="script.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

I got it, never mind!!!

I think I answered this in another question, but if you are trying to create a variable and store something in it, you use the "var" key word, the name of the variable, the "=" sign, and then the value you are assigning.

In the case of the first task for this challenge, it would be:

var age = 29;

Hope this helps.
