You don't need a variable here.

But if you did, you'd initialize it with an assignment operator ("=") instead of a comparison operator ("==="). Also, JavaScript is case sensitive, so you can't declare a variable named "boolean" (with lower-case "b") and then reference it using the name "Boolean" (with a capital "B").

But for this challenge, all you need is to put the value between the parentheses of the test. No variable needed.
