Create a variable with a string challenge task 2

don't understand how to use document.write function to print the contents of player variable to the page, in the challenge create a variable with a string

1 Answer

var player = 'Jasmine';


In example above, we create a variable with the var keyword and give it a name called player. We then tell this variable to have the string value of Jasmine by usong the assignment operator (=).

The document.write() is a function that can take any variable and write it to the document. In the case we provide it with the variable name that containes a value. This value will be printed to the page.

I hope that made sense ?
