7. Problem with syntax


#1

I don't fully understand how to do this, but now that I have it, I don't understand what's wrong.

/*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";
}

}

}

@crimsonghost,

Please read
http://www.codecademy.com/forum_questions/559dcb4be39efe550f00006b
and concentrate on:

  • the creation of the compare function
  • the truth-table
  • the build of the IF ELSE-IF statement structure as part of the compare FUNCTION-BODY
  • the execution of the compare function (keeping in mind that the return statement is used )

what @leonhard_wettengmx_n said. Also you are missing 1 character from the end of your code
