8. Why am I not getting a return message?


#1


I'm stuck on #8 of Build Rock Paper Scissors. My code runs, but I don't get the return message from that says "scissors wins!" or "it's a tie!" and so on. Could someone please explain why these messages aren't turning up? Thanks.


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 if(choice2 === "paper") 
            return( "paper wins"); 
            }
            
    else if(choice1 === "paper") {
        if(choice2 === "rock")
            return "paper wins";
        else if(choice2 === "scissors") 
           return ("scissors wins");
            
    else if(choice1 === "scissors") {
        if(choice2 === "rock")
            return "rock wins";
        else if(choice2 === "paper")
            return ("scissors wins");
    }
    }
}

How does one make a function run?
