Hey there, it looks like you are trying to link your myJSfile.js in your app.js script. See HTML code below.... you need to link the app.js file in your HTML. Typically the last line before the closing </body> tag. This might need to be just app.js depending on if app.js is in a folder or not named JS.

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
  </head>
  <body>
     <script src="js/app.js"></script>   
  </body>
</html>
