why the creation of this variable is not allowing me to get an equal of 19? var nineteen = (c * 5) - a ;

1 Answer

Because you're only allowed to get the numbers as combinations of a, b and c, and you're introducing 5 there. You have to figure out how to get to 19 by only using the values stored in a, b, c variables.
