Tell us what’s happening:
i couldn’t find out any prblem here… but why it’s not working?

Your code so far


// Example
var ourStr = "I come first. ";
ourStr += "I come second.";

// Only change code below this line

var myStr = "This is the first sentence. ";
myStr += "This is the second sentence ";

Here is what’s wrong.

You are missing a period and you are also adding a space after sentence.


#3

it’s still not working :frowning:


#4

Can you share your code?


#5
// Example
var ourStr = "I come first. ";
ourStr += "I come second.";

// Only change code below this line

var myStr = "This is the first sentence.";
myStr += "This is the second sentence.";

#6

It looks like your double quotes are not real double quotes.

Make sure you are using this quotation. "


#7

i did it as like as similar as the task … but still it’s not working … whatever thanks a lot dear … :slight_smile: am trying to find out


#8

You need to have a space in the first string after period.

var myStr = “This is the first sentence.”;

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into the forum, precede it with a line of three backticks and follow it with a line of three backticks to make easier to read. See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

@shimphillip When someone posts code with single or double quotes into the forum without using the 3 backticks mentioned above, then the forum software displays them as a curly version of the original.

I am literally having this same problem and i cant figure out how to fix it. I even went to the console on another page and did it. It worked on the console but for some reason on the codecamp module it won’t accept my values in quotes.

// Example
var ourStr = "I come first. ";
ourStr += "I come second.";

// Only change code below this line

var myStr = "This is the first sentence.";
myStr += "This is the second sentence.";

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make easier to read.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

Note: Backticks are not single quotes.

You are having the same problem, because your code is identical to the OP’s code. Use the suggestion by @shimphillip and you can solve this challenge.
