I get error messages:
Oops, try again. There was a problem with your syntax.
&
SyntaxError: Unexpected end of input in the console log.


var userChoice = prompt("Do you choose rock, paper or scissors?");
var computerChoice = Math.random();

	computerChoice = "paper";
} else {
	computerChoice = "scissors";
} 
console.log("Computer: " + computerChoice);
var compare = function(choice1, choice2) {
if (choice1 === choice2) {

}

I've just put in an extra " } " at the end and it's working better now,

But when I get the response from the computer I get these errors:
TypeError: compare is not a function
Oops, try again. You seem to have something wrong with your code. It threw the following error: TypeError: compare is not a function

Sorted with the help of a developer friend!

Correct code is:

var userChoice = prompt("Do you choose rock, paper or scissors?");
var computerChoice = Math.random();

if (computerChoice < 0.34) {
computerChoice = "rock";
} else if(computerChoice <= 0.67) {
computerChoice = "paper";
} else {
computerChoice = "scissors";
}
console.log("Computer: " + computerChoice);

var compare = function(choice1, choice2) {
if (choice1 === choice2) {
return "The result is a tie!";
}
else if (choice1 === "rock") {
if (choice2 === "scissors") {
return "rock wins";
} else {
return "paper wins";
}
}
else if (choice1 === "paper") {
if (choice2 === "rock") {
return "paper wins";
} else {
return "scissors wins";
}
}
else if (choice1 === "scissors") {
if (choice2 === "rock") {
return ("rock wins)");
}
else {
return "scissors wins";
}
}
}
compare(userChoice, computerChoice);
