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

Bug in quiz? It keeps telling me that my (correct answer) is not that same as (correct answer).

I can easily just skip this (and I have), but whenever I click "Resume Track" it brings me back here because it's unresolved. My code spits out the correct answer, but it's not letting me submit it. I'm assuming I may have done it differently than they'd like. Can somebody point me in the right direction?

var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName = "Smith";
var userName = id.toUpperCase() + "#" + lastName.toUpperCase();
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

<script src="app.js"></script>

Israel, you are so close!! I tried your solution in the Challenge, and although it didn't mind the


in the first task, it doesn't like it in the second. As it happens, you don't need this line at all. The results of this method call just get thrown away, as you don't print it, or assign it to a variable, or use it as a parameter in another method call, etc. Calling it twice, as you do in the next line is all that's needed, as the results there are concatenated and assigned to userName. In short, all you need is this:

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