Is this correct?

In the test it asks me Create variable named firstName here is what I wrote: var firstName

Is this correct?

var firstName = prompt;
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

That's right. And that's how the 2nd assignment should look like:

var firstName = 'Erik';
var lastName = 'Lassard';
var fullName = 

Try to solve the last one yourself

Hi Eric,

The challenge is asking you to enter your first name, which in this case is a string. You can enter the word prompt if you like, but you have to surround the first name with double quotes. So if you want to make prompt your first name, it would look like this:

var firstName = "prompt";
