jquery using variables

Hello Experts,

I am after understanding function and using variables with jquery.
I have a solution that does not seem to work (code below) and i would be thankful if someone can help me finalize it.

The variables are:

places-x  e.g.   places-1 ... places-2 ... places-3
mb-x  e.g.    mb-1 ... mb-2 ... mb-3

Here is the code but it does not work


for (var i=1; i<= 15;i++) 
	{
		var $position;
	    $('#places-+i').mouseenter(function(){
		$position = $('#mb-'+i).position();
		$('#standort-img').stop().fadeTo(100, 0.7);
		$('#mb-'+i).addClass('mb-zindex');
		$('#mb-'+i).stop().animate({width: 24, height: 24,top: ($position.top - (8/2)), left: ($position.left -(8/2))}, 100);		
		
		}).mouseleave(function() {
		$('#mb-'+i).stop().animate({width: 16, height: 16,top: $position.top, left: $position.left}, 100);
		$('#mb-'+i).removeClass('mb-zindex');
		$('#standort-img').stop().fadeTo(200, 1.0);
		});
	}

From a quick glance of the code I can see one problem right off the bat:

 $('#places-+i').mouseenter(function(){

Open in new window


should be:

 $('#places-'+i).mouseenter(function(){

Open in new window

You have used apostrophe mistakenly  suppose

'#places-+i' should be changed to '#places-'+i
