JavaScript JavaScript Basics Working with Strings Combine and Manipulate Strings

Unable to complete

The variable msg = 'firstName ' + 'lastName: '; - using the check work button, it states the spaces are non existent.

let firstName = 'Melbron';
let lastName = 'Gardner';
let role = 'developer';
var msg = 'firstName ' + 'lastName: ';

I've also tried the following but it does not seem to accept -

let firstName = 'Melbron'; let lastName = 'Gardner'; let role = 'developer'; var msg = 'firstName ' + '' + 'lastName: ' ;

You are so close!

The last line would need to be modified and you will be golden with part 2 of the challenge.

let firstName = 'Melbron';
let lastName = 'Gardner';
let role = 'developer';
var msg = firstName + '  ' + lastName ': ' + role;

The last part of the challenge is up to the student complete. Good luck with your JavaScript journey!

Thank you!
