Building a Cash Register


#1

I keep getting an error code.

var cashRegister = {
total: 0,
//insert the add method here
add: function(itemCost){
this.total += itemCost;
};

scan: function (item) {
    switch (item) { 
    case "eggs": 
        this.add(0.98); 
        break;

    case "milk": 
        this.add(1.23); 
        break;

    //Add other 2 items here
    case "magazine": 
        this.add(4.99); 
        break;
    case "chocolate": 
        this.add(0.45); 
        break;

    }
    return true;
}

};

//Scan 2 eggs and 3 magazines

//Show the total bill
console.log('Your bill is '+cashRegister.total);
cashRegister.scan("magazine");
cashRegister.scan("magazine");
cashRegister.scan("magazine");
cashRegister.scan("eggs");
cashRegister.scan("eggs");

When you add a property in literal notation, you should follow it with a ,(comma), not a semicolon. So, switch a comma instead of the semicolon after closing the bracket => this:total += itemCost; },

It still doesn't work.

var cashRegister = {
total: 0,
//insert the add method here
add: function(itemCost){
this.total += itemCost,
},

scan: function (item) {
    switch (item) { 
    case "eggs": 
        this.add(0.98); 
        break;

    case "milk": 
        this.add(1.23); 
        break;

    //Add other 2 items here
    case "magazine": 
        this.add(4.99); 
        break;
    case "chocolate": 
        this.add(0.45); 
        break;

    }
    return true;
}

};

//Scan 2 eggs and 3 magazines

//Show the total bill
console.log('Your bill is '+cashRegister.total);
cashRegister.scan("magazine");
cashRegister.scan("magazine");
cashRegister.scan("magazine");
cashRegister.scan("eggs");
cashRegister.scan("eggs");

I think you have to delete the 'return true' statement. Everything else seems to be fine.

@chj92james... have you tried your responses to see if that works? Are you guessing?

Does anyone Else have any ideas?
