1. Introduction


#1

var speed = 65;

// Complete the condition in the ()s on line 4
if("speed > 80") {
console.log("Slow down");

}
else {
console.log("Drive safe");

}
"It looks like you didn't print the correct string"
I have tried everything

  • checked my placement, spelling, punctuation
  • refreshing browser, resetting the code, copying and pasting.
    Can you help me out and tell me where my error is please?"

#2

Remove the quotes so the variable, the operator and the value are exposed.

if (speed > 80)

#3

@xkyux,

The IF ELSE statement

if ( condition ) {
    //IF code-block
}
else {
   //ELSE code-block
}

If you write "speed > 80"
you have a so-called String
instead of a comparison in your condition. like
( speed > 80 )
