I keep getting a parse error. What am I doing wrong?

I keep getting a parse error. I'm told to assign a string value, a number and a boolean value to an assorted array, but an error pops up. What am I doing wrong?

var data = [
var assorted [ 'eggs', 36, true ];
<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>JavaScript Loops</title>
<script src="script.js"></script>

You have to store the value to the variable, add an "=" sign on the assorted variable.

Like this:

var assorted = [ 'eggs', 36, true ];
