Hey everyone this has has got me stumped, and I'm thinking it's a simple fix, maybe my brain is fried from working this problem over and over.

I have linked (pick-whipped) a text value to equal the slider value that is working correctly, i am trying to add text at the beginning and end of the value so all I have to do is change the slider control to update the value. Here is my expression i'm using

"North Americar"+thisComp.layer("Circle 1").effect("Value")("Slider")+" million"

I want it to look like this:

North America
266.2 million

the North america part is not showing up in my comp and keep returning this error:

After Effects warning: invalid numeric result (divide by zero?)
Expression disabled.

Error occurred at line 1.
Comp: ‘Comp 1’
Layer: 3 (‘North America Value’)
Property: ‘Source Text’

can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thank you so much!
