JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Storing and Tracking Information with Variables Using String Methods

What is problem I get task 1 not passing Error in task 2 i have already completed task1

This is the code i wrote

var id = "23188xtr";

var lastName = "Smith";

var userName = id.toUpperCase();

userName += '#' + lastname.toUpperCase();


  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
<script src="app.js"></script>

I found my Mistake lastname.toUpperCase(); is the error it has to be lastName.toUpperCase(); But since i got error task 1 not passing i thought my error was with task 1 that was very confusing that is why i posted the question. .

Hi there! You're doing fantastic, but you have a small typo which is causing a syntax error. When a syntax error occurs, your code can no longer be interpreted at all. This is the most common reason for getting a "Task 1 is no longer passing" message.

In your final line you are trying to get the upper case variant for a value stored in lastname. The problem is the capitalization. That variable should be lastName. Note the capital "N" versus lower case "n".

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
