JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Storing and Tracking Information with Variables The Variable Challenge Solution

How's this?

Not as good as Dave's but I thought I'd share:

var adjective = prompt("Please type an adjective");
var noun = prompt("Please type a noun");
var verb = prompt("Please type a verb");
var sentence = document.write("There was once an " + adjective + " " + noun + " " + "who wanted to " + verb + " Antarctica.");

Any room for improvement?

What I'd probably do for the last line is a little bit of code formatting in the text editor so the different portions of the concatenated string go on a new line. like this...

var sentence = document.write("There was once an " 
+ adjective + " " 
+ noun 
+ " " 
+ "who wanted to " 
+ verb 
+ " Antarctica.");

This means nothing to the JavaScript interpreter in your browser but can make your code easier to read. The browser ignores all empty spaces in your code.

Well done so far :)

You can do the same thing with template literals ("ES6" stuff). Way easier to read and write!

let sentence = document.write(`There was once an ${adjective} ${noun} who wanted to ${verb} Antarctica.`);

You can read about them at the MDN docs.
