JavaScript JavaScript Foundations Arrays Getting and Setting

Quiz question number 2

I get the first question correct but when I go to answer the 2nd question it tells me that the first question is now wrong. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

      var myArray = ["sugar", "rush", "fix", "it", 3.14, 42];
      var thirdElementInArray = myArray[2];
      var myArray[30] = "treehouse";

The error message that the challenge gave you is misleading; the problem in your code is that you've got "var" before "myArray" on line 18, which would be you redeclaring it. Remove "var", and you're good to go!

Eric, try removing the var from line 18. You have already created the variable in line 16, so no need to use var again.
