So stuck using string concatenation so that the final value of userName is "23188XTR#SMITH".

Lost on this one I'm supposed to be using string concatenation so that the final value of userName is "23188XTR#SMITH". I'm getting nothing but errors. I've reviewed the last two vids and I understand them well enough but can't seem to get this one to pass.

var id = "23188xtr"; var lastName = "Smith";

var userName = id.toUpperCase(); var userName.toUpperCase + "#" + lastName.toUpperCase();

app.js
var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName = "Smith";

var userName = id.toUpperCase();
var userName.toUpperCase + "#" + lastName.toUpperCase();

using string concatenation so that the final value of userName is "23188XTR#SMITH".

var userName.toUpperCase + "#" + lastName.toUpperCase();

should be

userName = userName.toUpperCase() + "#" + lastName.toUpperCase();
