8/9 how do i do this?


#1

my 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"
};
};
};

it gives me the error message "Oops, try again. Make sure to call your compare function with userChoice and computerChoice as the arguments!" where am i going wrong?

Please read

and concentrate on

  • the execution of the =compare= function

If you present code in this forum

  • leave one blank-line above of your code
  • select your code in the Post
  • then =click= on the </>-symbol-of-this-editor

Your code will then be in a pre-code state
and you will be able to make/present the proper indentations.
