Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token }

I'm getting an unexpected token error and I can' t figure out why. My function won't close, the curly braces for whatever reason are not registering. I know I've just probably forgotten a character or something, but can't figure it out

function changeColor() { 
  var r = $("#red").val();
  var g = $("#green").val();
  var b = $("#blue").val();
  $("#newColor").css("background-color", "rgb(" + r + ", " + g +"," + b + ")"

You are missing the closing parenthesis ) of the .css() method and a semi-colon (although the semi-colon isn't mandatory in this case).

$("#newColor").css("background-color", "rgb(" + r + ", " + g +"," + b + ")");

Needs the final ) and optional ; as Dino says.
