Why do you have the variable inside ""?

Here's some hints:

  • as Pontus observed, you should never put a variable name in quotes
  • use a space between the two names (not a new line)
  • try combining the names (and space) in one statement using "." operators

Clearly i wasn't coding it correctly and had gone a bit loopy! Thanks people :)
