I had some trouble with the Elsif assignment. Probably I was trying to get it to do too much at one time.

However, this worked.

if 81 < 70
puts “Sorry! Better luck next time!”
elsif 81 > 70
puts “Well done! You passed the test.”
puts “Well done! You passed the test.”

Aha! I figured out what I was doing wrong. Here’s what I ended with:

print "Thank you for completing this online test. What is your test score? "
score = gets.chomp.to_i

if score >= 90
puts “Well done! Your grade is A.”
elsif score >= 80
puts “Well done! Your grade is B.”
elsif score >= 70
puts “Very good! Your grade is C.”
puts “You have not passed the test. Please notify your instructor to retake.”

And it works, yay! :fireworks:

I modeled it on this example I found online:

print “How old are you?”
age = gets.chomp.to_i
if age >= 62
print “Senior Fare $7.50.”
elsif age >= 14
print “Adult Fare $12.00.”
elsif age >= 4
print “Child Fare $5.00.”
print “Admission Free”
