Putting a Variable into the document.write Command

I'm not actually sure how to put a variable into the document.write command. I've tried adding the name of the variable into it; I'm not sure if this is only slightly or completely wrong.

app.js
var player = "Jasmine" ;
document.write("<h1>  </h1>")
index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="app.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

For the purposes of this challenge, you can simply include the player variable inside the document.write() method without any html <h1> tags.

var player = "Jasmine";
document.write(player);

However if you want include the HTML <h1> tags you have, you can do that by placing them in a string and concatenating them with the variable like this:

var player = "Jasmine";
document.write("<h1>" + player + "</h1>");

Another option is to use template literals to write it like this:

var player = "Jasmine";
document.write(`<h1> ${player} </h1>`);
