Stuck on this task. Don't remember using the # or how to string these together.

Specifically Task 2 of 2.

var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName = "Smith";
var userName
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
<script src="app.js"></script>

You nearly had task 1, just assign it instead of logging it (and don't quote your variable names):

var userName = id.toUpperCase();

Task two is just more of the same, and concatenating strings with the plus (+) operator:

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

Thanks so much. Was very thrown off by the # symbol.
