3/8 - Comparison Operators Error

https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-javascript/lessons/control-flow/exercises/comparison-operators?action=lesson_resume

My console keeps displaying the following error:

/home/ccuser/workspace/javascript_101_Unit_2_v3/comparison.js:5
} else (hungerLevel < 7) {
^
SyntaxError: Unexpected token {
at createScript (vm.js:53:10)

at Module.runMain (module.js:605:10)
at run (bootstrap_node.js:427:7)
at startup (bootstrap_node.js:151:9)

My code is as follows:


var hungerLevel = 5;

if (hungerLevel > 7) {
  console.log('Time to eat!');
} else (hungerLevel < 7) {
  console.log('Let\'s eat later.');
}


Please, will someone explain what I’ve done wrong?


#2

else can’t have a condition, given it are all the remaining cases. Given setting a condition might not cover all cases

Ahh! Thank you. Such a simple solution :man_facepalming:
