String Interpolation

In the previous lessons, we've put strings into variables. Now, let's put a variable's value into a string!

Putting a variable in a string uses concepts we've already learned. The JavaScript term for this idea is interpolation.

Interpolwhat?! —Possibly the most fun JavaScript term to say.

We can use the + operator from earlier to interpolate (insert) a variable into a string, like this:

var myPet = 'armadillo';
console.log('I own a pet ' + myPet + '.'); 
// Output: 'I own a pet armadillo.'
