Nothing appearing and console reporting "Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier"

Hello, I can't figure out why nothing is appearing when I try to preview the Workspace. I check the console and only see "Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier". Here is my code:

var randomNumber = getRandomNumber(10); var guess; var guessCount = 0; car correctGuess = false;

function getRandomNumber( upper ) { var num = Math.floor(Math.random() * upper) + 1; return num; }

do { guess = prompt("I am thinking of a number between 1 and 10. What is it?"); guessCount += 1; if (parseInt(guess) === randomNumber) { correctGuess = true; } } while ( ! correctGuess ) document.write("<p>Congrats! You got it right!</p>"); document.write("<p>It took you " + guessCount + "tries.</p>");

It is just a typo. You spelled "var" with a "c" in your first line of code "car correctGuess = false;"
