You cannot use an underscire in a variable name since the underscore is used to represent a pattern object. 

Compound expressions use a semi-colon.

carWeight = 1000; personNumber = 0;

Button["A person enters", carWeight += 60; personNumber++]

{Dynamic[carWeight], Dynamic[personNumber]}

Hello, I'm a novice in Mathematica, now got a little puzzeled:

I'm intend to create a button which take two actions while clicked:

Button["A person enters",

seems that this sentence won't work properly, 

There must be some error with the grammar, right?
