Can't figure out what's wrong with my code in 8. What if choice1 is scissors?


#1

Your code returned 'scissors wins' instead of 'undefined' when the inputs are scissors and rock

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 (choice2 === "paper") {
        return "paper wins";
    } else {
        return "scissors wins";
    }};
    
compare(userChoice, computerChoice);

@chipace32790,

Please read
http://www.codecademy.com/forum_questions/559dcb4be39efe550f00006b
and concentrate on:

  • the creation of the compare function
  • 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 )
