Challenge task 2
Complete the assignment to the userName variable by adding a # symbol followed by an all uppercase version of the lastName variable. In other words, using string concatenation so that the final value of userName is "23188XTR#SMITH".
i have the var down right but im not sure how to place the '#'. it keeps telling me to place it in-between the id.toUpperCase and lastName.toUpperCase.
var id = "23188xtr"; var lastName = "Smith"; var userName = id.toUpperCase('#') + lastName.toUpperCase;

You need to concatenate the two variables with a hash in the middle. Also, the parentheses should be empty, as you are simply calling the
toUppercase() method on the variables.
Your code should look something like this:
var userName = id.toUpperCase() + '#' + lastName.toUpperCase();
Almost, you need to create other concantenation for # symbol outside UpperCase(), something like this below:
var id = "23188xtr"; var lastName = "Smith"; var userName = id.toUpperCase() + "#" + lastName.toUpperCase();
