Var help and adding the function

Use the document.write() function to print the contents of the player variable to the page.

I used the var player = "Jasmine"; now it wants me to use the document.write a function to print the contents of the player variable, I think I know but not sure

app.js
var player = "Jasmine";
document.write("Jasmine");
index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="app.js">
  document.write("Jasmine");
  </script>
</body>
</html>

You're close - you're writing the correct value, but it wants you to use the variable (went to all that trouble to save it, right?) - it would look something like this:

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

You're most welcome - and that's great!
