The if statements is just showing you what it can do, or what it is doing. You'll find out more information on if statements in the lessons after this one.


#3

#4

What's your question? I can't really help if I don't know what's going wrong.


#5

the thing is i dont really understand what an if is thats why i dont really understand the explanation is a bit weird from codeacademy for me because im really new to coding so i want a good explenation of what an if is

Ah I see. Well, it's easier if we translate it to English.

if (1 < 2) { ... }

this translates to:

"if 1 is less than 2, then I want to do ... "

This just lets the computer know you want to do something but only IF the condition (1 < 2) is correct.
