Spaces aren't aloud in naming stuff in java. You could do: int numberOfPeople = 3;

To elaborate on Benyamin's answer, if you want to combine more than one word make sure the first word is lower case and then the first letter of each other word is capitalized. This lets other programmers know what the words are since Java script won't read the spaces in your code.
