JavaScript Node.js Basics 2017 Introduction to Node.js The Console

Review the code in app.js. Use the log method on the console object to print out the name variable.

I'm completely confused on where to declare the name variable

const name = "Andrew";
const details = { favouriteLanguage: "JavaScript", age: 33, children: 3 } 
const errorMessage = "Something bad has occurred";

Seems the question is asking you to output the values of the variables that are already defined.

each has its own method on the console object.. log,dir,error. so it's just a matter of passing the right variable name to the correct console method! hope that makes sense

The declaration (and initialization) is already there on the top line.

The first task is just to use the log function to display it.
