what am I doing wrong?

Javascript basic: Combine and manipulate strings

Question: Below role, create a new variable named msg that combines the firstName, lastName and role variables to create a string like "Carlos Salgado: developer".

my answer:

let firstName = ("Mark");

let lastName = ("Rich");

let role = 'developer';

let msg = ('"' + firstName + ' ' + lastName + ': ' + role +'".');

The quotes are not expected to be added to the string, nor is the final punctuation.

Also, it's not necessary to enclose strings in parentheses, whether they are simple literals or concatenated.

thank you steven

let msg = firstName + ' ' + lastName + ': ' + role

thanks Nyasha
