In the previous lesson, Craig did not put quotes around 11 and it ran. Do I need to use quotes?

If you intend the value to be the integer 11 then quotes are not needed. If you intend the value to be a string of two “1” characters then quotes are needed.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
