Code is wrong for me. Also getting errors for +=, not sure why

var adjective = prompt("Please type a adjective."); var verb = prompt("Please type a verb."); var noun = prompt("Please type a noun."); alert("All done. Ready for the story?"); var sentence = "<h2>There was once a " + adjective; var sentence =+ " programmer who wanted to use Javascript to" + verb; var sentence =+ " the" + noun + ".</h2>";

document.write(sentence);

Whats wrong with this code? And why do I get console errors for +=?

In your question you correctly cite +=; However, in the code, you are consistently using =+.

Hey Jason,

Hope this helps.

var adjective = prompt("Please type a adjective."); 

var verb = prompt("Please type a verb."); 

var noun = prompt("Please type a noun."); 

alert("All done. Ready for the story?"); 

var sentence = "There was once a " + adjective; 

var sentence += " programmer who wanted to use Javascript to" + verb; 

var sentence += " the" + noun + ".";
