Challenge task 2 of 2 from Javascript basic here is my code var player = 'Jasmine'; document.write('player');

this is the error message you didn't provide the player variable to the document.wrie()

app.js
var player = 'Jasmine';
document.write('player');
index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>

<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

You're so close...just remove the quotes. If you wrap 'player' inside quotes it becomes a string and not a variable.

var player = 'Jasmine';
document.write(player);

Thanks for your help but this did not work for me Elijah when I tried your answer it cancels the first var player on line One any other answers

So I solved my challenge problem by not using the comma at the end of the var player and yes you were partly right cause I did not use the single quotes in the document.write
