Hey there! You're so close!

You've been asked to check if the value in the variable a is greater than the value contained in the variable b, so you don't need to modify the original variables or add any new ones. Here's what you need...

var a = 10;
var b = 20;
var c = 30;

if (a > b) {
  alert('a is greater than b');
} else {
  alert('a is not greater than b');

Do you see how I've just checked if a > b? :-)
