Declare the variable first, using "var" or "string" and then the name, follow with the equal-sign and then call the function. Remember to put parentheses () after the function name. Finally end the statement with a semicolon. You won't need an actual name here, it will be input by the user.

Remember to spell "firstName" with a capital "N" and "ReadLine" with capital "L".
