JavaScript JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects Tracking Data Using Objects Create an Array of Objects

Can not figure out

I am trying to add three objects with two values each to this array but am unable to do so. I believe the error is in the first few steps of my code as the color indicator is different on objects 2 and 3 then they are on object 1.

script.js
var objects = [
  var obj1 = {
    name : 'Raymond',
    age : 20
  },
  var obj2 = {
    name : 'Shauna',
    age : 20
  },
  var obj3 = {
    name : 'Steve',
    age : 52
  }
];

You need to remove the object literal definition expressions from the array. Try this:

var objects = [ 
  { 
    name: 'Raymond',
    age: 20 
  },
  { 
    name: 'Shauna',
    age: 20
  },
  {
   name: 'Steve', 
   age: 52
  } 
];

Hi Jamie,

I would still need the objects to be defined in that case, where they are not in this example I believe. However, after a little more messing with it I was able to get it working. I took the preceding 'var ' out of each of them and passed the code challenge.

Thank you for responding so quick! -Raymond

You are defining the objects as they are items of the array. You don't need to define them using a keyword like var to create an object literal.
