@jeffreyyourman,

Please read

and concentrate on:

  • the creation of the compare function ( Look at: the expected return string's )
  • 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 )
