Why are there three === instead of two?


3 equals signs is known as Identity / strict equality, meaning that the data types also must be equal:

console.log(1 == true) // output: true
console.log(1 === true) // output: false


I couldn’t find out what I was doing wrong, then I saw that the last statement had an exclamation point and I had put a period. Realistically, if I had made that mistake, I don’t think it would’ve prevented me from going forward. I think that’s a pain in the ■■■ to have to deal with.
