Constant Syntax Error, need some help


#1



Build "Rock, Paper, Scissors" #4


I constantly get the error, "SyntaxError: Unexpected token else, and I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing wrong.


var computerChoice = Math.random()
console.log (computerChoice)
if (0 < computerChoice <= .33); {
    computerChoice =  "rock";
} else if (.34 < computerChoice <= .66); {
    computerChoice = "paper";
} else (.67 < computerChoice <= 1); {
    computerChoice = "scissors";
}

@tguilford7,
An ELSE statement does NOT take a condition...

The Math.random() method will deliver a number with a value
in the range of 0_(included)_ upontill 0.9999_(1 excluded)_.

As you will have to divide the number range form 0_(inclusive)_ to 0,9999_(so 1 excluded)_
into 3 equal partitions
we have to use an if else-if else statement.
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 
    }

following the Instructions the conditions would be:

  1. If computerChoice is between 0 and 0.33, make computerChoice equal to "rock".
    ( 0 <= computerChoice && computerChoice <= 0.33) which we capture at the IF using
    ( computerChoice <= 0.33)

  2. If computerChoice is between 0.34 and 0.66, make computerChoice equal to "paper".
    ( 0.33 < computerChoice && computerChoice < 0.67) which we capture at the ELSE IF as
    ( computerChoice < 0.67 )

  3. If computerChoice is between 0.67 and 1, make computerChoice equal to "scissors".
    ( 0.67 <= computerChoice && computerChoice < 1) , you reached the ELSE level
    you can asume that computerChoice is greater equal to 0.67,
    the ELSE does NOT take a condition, just write your code.

Thanks for your help! I was able to get it correct from there.
