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?

script.js
var data = [
  3,
  7,
  9,
];
var assorted [ 'eggs', 36, true ];
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>JavaScript Loops</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="script.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

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

Like this:

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