7/7 Unexpected Identifier


#1

This solution looks like it should work however I receive an error message that says I have an unexpected Identifier.

My solution looks like this.

function StaffMember(name,discountPercent){
this.name = name;
this.discountPercent = discountPercent;
}

var sally = new StaffMember("Sally",5);
var bob = new StaffMember("Bob",10);

// Create yourself again as 'me' with a staff discount of 20%
var me = new StaffMember("Ken", 20);

var cashRegister = {
total:0,
lastTransactionAmount: 0,
add: function(itemCost){
this.total += (itemCost || 0);
this.lastTransactionAmount = itemCost;
},
scan: function(item,quantity){
switch (item){
case "eggs": this.add(0.98 * quantity); break;
case "milk": this.add(1.23 * quantity); break;
case "magazine": this.add(4.99 * quantity); break;
case "chocolate": this.add(0.45 * quantity); break;
}
return true;
},
voidLastTransaction : function(){
this.total -= this.lastTransactionAmount;
this.lastTransactionAmount = 0;
},
// Create a new method applyStaffDiscount here
var applyStaffDiscount = function(employee)
{
this.total -= this.total * (employee.discountPercent / 100);
}
};
};

cashRegister.scan('eggs',1);
cashRegister.scan('milk',1);
cashRegister.scan('magazine',3);
// Apply your staff discount by passing the 'me' object
// to applyStaffDiscount
cashRegister.applyStaffDiscount(me);

// Show the total bill
console.log('Your bill is '+cashRegister.total.toFixed(2));

@dapper_artisan,

Your

var applyStaffDiscount = function(employee) 
 {
 this.total -= this.total * (employee.discountPercent / 100);
 }

should be defined as a property,
property-key : property-Value
like

 applyStaffDiscount : function(employee) 
 {
 this.total -= this.total * (employee.discountPercent / 100);
 }

You have a closing curly-bracket-} to many.


nice to know

You could test in labs.codecademy.com
choose Javascript
You will get a split-screen
In the left-hand-side you paste-in your code
click on the Run button.
The right-hand-side is the console
