I have this code but it doesnt work:

Can anybody help me out here?

A lot of errors in so few lines!
c) The id of the textbox is a literal so must be in quotes. Without the quotes the reference is to the variable number, which has the value of 10, which is nonsense. (Just in case - an id must start with a letter).
d) Your script attempts to refer to the textbox before it exists.
<input type="text" id="mynumber" value="">
var number = 10;
document.getElementById("mynumber").value = number;

There is an error in your syntax . Capital letters are important.
var number1 = 10;
var number = document.getElementById("number");
// number.value = "Hello World"; // <-- This does not work jet.
<input type="text" id="number">
But I could not assign the value jet.

Note that in Internet Explorer, names and id's are global variables and thus you should NEVER use a (global) variable or function name which is the same as an HTML element name or id. Example:-
<input id = "text">
text = "Hello World"; // global variable
document.getElementById('text').value = text;
I agree that the variable here is local because it is declared with the var keyword. But you are playing with fire! Follow my simple rule.
