Final score not working
The final score keeps showing in the console as 15. I've done everything the video said but I can't see my mistake. Any advice on why it isn't working?
var score = 0; score += 10; score +=5;
var bonusPts = 100; var finalScore = score + bonusPts; console.log(score);

This code does not show the final score in the console, it shows the "score" instead:
console.log(score); // last line of current code console.log(finalScore); // what you probably wanted
after these : var score = 0; score += 10; score +=5; variable score equals 15 because 0 + 10 + 15 second line of your code doesn't change score, it declares 2 new variables (bonusPts and finalScore ) but score is still 15, so when you run console.log(score); you see it is 15
