@Lilyheart OH!
I will do that
var a = 5;
var b = 12;
var c = 4.6;

// Only modify code below this line

a *= a * 1;
b *= 0.25 * b;
c *= c * 2.17391304348;
i am stuck on the last line to make it say c should equal 46

Ok - just a point of reference, when using =, you should not be referencing the variable again. i.e. `a = 1;is the same asa = a * 1;`
Sorry, dang code conversion on here didn't work properly, hang on
a *= 1;
// is the same as
a = a * 1;

for the last line, wouldn't:

c *= 10;

work?

I haven't had a chance to go thru the chat history here yet, but just a quick post. The meetup this Thursday will change. The library just emailed me that they will be closing early Thursday. I've already informed those who RSVP'd and @lantech19446 is seeing if he can get us space at the Lansdale library last minute.
