...And the good. Please help


#1

Here is my code:
for (i = 1; i < 21; i++) {
console.log(i);
if (i % 3 === 0)
console.log ("Fizz");
}else if {
(i % 5=== 0)
console.log ("Buzz");
}else {
(i % 3 === 0 && i /5 ===0)
console.log ("FizzBuzz")
};

The error that comes up is Unexpected token else

@rajes1073,

The if else-if else skeleton looks like:

    if (conditionA) {
               //conditionA is true
                //your code 
     } else if (conditionB) {
               //conditionA is false
               //conditionB is true
              //your code 
    } else {     // <=== !! Takes NO condition-statements !!
               //conditionA is false
               //conditionB is false
              //your code 
    }

I changed my code and came up with this;
for (i = 1; i < 21; i++) {
console.log(i);
if (i % 3 === 0) {
console.log ("Fizz");
(i % 5=== 0)
console.log ("Buzz");
}else {
(i % 3 === 0 && i /5 ===0)
console.log ("FizzBuzz")
}; };

now it prints out numbers but comes up with 'Oops it looks like you've printed the wrong amount of numbers'
How can i fix this?

@rajes1073,

Javascript has the so-called Remainder-operator %
is actually a modulo-operator
and if used it will return the rest-value.

9%3 You read it as nine modulo three is zero, as 9 divided by 3 has NO rest-value.
22%6 You read 22 modulo six is 4, as 22 divided by 6 will leave you with rest-value 4
10%5 You read 10 nodulo five is zero, as 10 divided by 5 will have NO rest-value

In this section you have to figure out
(i%3 === 0 && i%5 === 0) to display FizzBuzz // if (imodulo 3 equals zero AND imodulo 5 equals zero)
(i%3 === 0) to display Fizz // else if (i modulo 3 equals zero )
(i%5 === 0) to display Buzz // else if (i modulo 5 equals zero )
AND
if none of the above display i //else display i

You will have to use an IF ELSE-IF ELSE-IF ELSE-statement
within a for-loop.
