java script question

can someone remind me how to use the alert() function to display the contents of the 'message' variable in a dialogue window

const myName = "Kit";
let myAge = 39;
var message = "Kit" + "39";
var message = alert("Kit" + "39");

You have already stored those values into a variable called message. All you have to do is put the variable into the alert function and not as a string between quotation marks. Do this:

var myName = 'Kit';
var myAge = 39;
var message = myName + ' is ' + myAge;


thanks for your help
