var myName = "Taylor";
var myAge = 33;
var response = myName + " is " + (myAge);
alert(response);

just a couple of things.

  1. alert is a function so you need () and anything your function need to work with goes in the ()
  2. you need a space before is or it will look like this in the alert window toyloris 33

all in all good stuff. happy coding.
