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

Create a variable named age?

Completely lost on this one. Can anyone guide me through it or show the answer and explain it how you arrived? I copied and pasted something I found on search engine just to have something in the box, but have gone back to the video 3 times now and not understanding.

script.js
var name = {
    name: 'Chris'
var age = "32"
};

he way your code is written, it looks like you are trying to create an object called name and assigning some properties to it. if you are trying to create an object with multiple properties, it would look something like this:

var Chris = {
   name: "Chris",
   age: 32
};

However, this particular challenge ask you to create a variable called age with your age and the second task is to create a variable called price and store a floating point number in it.

The end result would be something like:

var age = 32;
var price = 10.99

Let me know if that doesn't answer your question.
