Here's some hints:

  • template literals start and end with "backtick" characters :point_right: `
  • variable contents are represented by the variable name preceded by $ and enclosed in braces {}

And here is an example:

var num = 3;
var msg = `There are ${num} boxes here.`;

Show the answer that you are giving now. Because of the special characters, you'll probably need to format it as code (as I did in the example above). Use the instructions for code formatting in the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area. :arrow_heading_down:   Or watch this video on code formatting.
