How should the code be fixed in order to solve this problem

It is saying the variables are not equal, fix the code. For some reason I'm drawing a blank on what to do

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <title> JavaScript Foundations: Variables</title>
      html {
        background: #FAFAFA;
        font-family: sans-serif;
    <script src="ignore_this.js"></script>
    <h1>JavaScript Foundations</h1>
    <h2>Variables: Null and Undefined</h2>

    <div id="container">


        var myUndefinedVariable;
        var myNullVariable = null;

        if(myNullVariable == myUndefinedVariable) {
            identicall( 0);

So javascript is really weird, they have == to check to see if the types are more or less the same, and then they have the special === sign to see if they are an exact match and not "close enough" So all this challange is asking you to do is an an extra equal sign at the end of the == to make it ===.
