Parse Error

var paris = {

population = 2.211e6, latitude = '48.8567 N', longitude = '2.3508 E'

};

Above is my code for this assignment and I continue to get a parse error so I do not know where I am going wrong.

script.js
var paris = {

  population = 2.211e6,
  latitude = '48.8567 N',
  longitude = '2.3508 E'


};

Running it through a validation service shows:

Expected ':' and instead saw '='.
  population = 2.211e6,

You should be using colons instead of assignment operators

You have declared an object called paris. Any key value pairs within an object should be separated with colons and not an assignment operator.

Check through your codes, and as KRIS has said above, use colons (:).
