you don't need to echo anything, they just want you to change the value of your variables. adding/subtracting like you are is not actually reassigning the new values to the variables. for that you simply need to put myVar = myVar + 5 etc., or even more simply, use the += and -= shortcuts, so myVar += 5, etc.
