There are a ton of errors associated with the lines I just wrote in this exercise, but things are still moving along. So how am I supposed to know what I’m doing wrong? Pushing on regardless of whether it’s right or wrong doesn’t seem to be the way to learn.


Same here! I also do not know what it means by “uncomment” I have tried everything. Anyways, I don’t like that it says error but I still get the check mark…


uncomment means you have to remove the */ in front of the last line. you can make the errors disapear by using just one “=” instead of “==”. at least this was the problem in my case.
