JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Storing and Tracking Information with Variables Combining Strings

Create a variable named fullName that combines both the first and last name variables to create a string like "Mary Jone

I don't really understand the question. It's asking me to write a variable that inside has my full and last name. (I know I am not using those since it isn't really necessary the name I use) but it keeps saying either "Are you using the +..." or "Oops, looks like Task 1 is no longer passing"

script.js
var firstName = ("Wrench");
var lastName = ("Defalt");
var fullName += ('Wrench Defalt');
