Why is button in single quotes when the click method is use. Why is the button in double quotes in the removeClass?

I assume it doesn't matter but I figured I would ask. I tried different combinations doubles around both and singles around both and the code still worked I was curious why you would write it this way.

Doesn't really matter, so long as you're consistent with it

Hi Steven Romano

Lush Sleutsky has the answer -- JavaScript doesn't care which type of quote marks you use, single or double, as long as you match the type for each pair. In other words use a single quote with another single quote like this var name = 'Steven', and a double quote with another doule quote like this: var name = "Steven".
