8/9-Syntax Error


#1

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 win";
}
}
else if (choice1 === "scissors") {
if (choice2 === "paper") {
return "scissors wins";
}
else {
return "rock wins";
}
};
The bold and italicized section is Step 8. I keep getting an error message saying "Oops, try again. There was a problem with your syntax."
Any ideas as to why? Thanks

I believe you need another bracket at the end. :wink:

Thank you however, I added another bracket which now is a total of 3 brackets and I'm still getting the same error message.

var compare = function(choice1, choice2){

}
else if(choice1 === "rock"){
if(choice2 === "scissors"){

else if(choice1 === "paper"){

else if (choice1 ==="scissors"){

};
compare(userChoice, computerChoice)

Try this :smile:

Please do not say "Try this" or "Do it like this", for we need to explain what the problem is. Thanks if you read this through :smiley:
