JavaScript Variables Explained Code Challenge Question

Set the favoriteColor variable to your favorite color. You might need to move some things around and add or change some text. Important: The code you write in each task should be added to the code written in the previous task.

I don't understand what i'm doing wrong? am i supposed to add the previous task's code to this code? I have typed this as my answer, but it says it's wrong: String favoriteColor = "blue"; The answer to this task would be much appreciated, and an explanation as well.

I typed in

String favoriteColor = "Red";

and it worked perfectly fine. Try refreshing the page, could be a compiler error. If that doesn't work try:

String favoriteColor = new String();
favoriteColor = "Red";


String favoriteColor;
favoriteColor = "Red";

Also, Java, not Javascript. Two different languages.

thank you all. Ricardo I did refresh the page and it worked thank you
