Hello Yang,
Try this:


carWeight == tareWeight;
personNumber == 0;

Row[{Button["A person enters", {carWeight +== 60, personNumber++}],
  Dynamic[{carWeight, personNumber}]}]


You must avoid underscores "_" in variable names. It is a good habit to use an lower case letter to begin each variable name. Notice that Dynamic sits outside the button--that is the only place you need to see the current (i.  e., dynamic) values.
