Getting Syntax Error Unexpected Token


#1

Not sure what I am doing wrong.

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(choice1 === "paper") {

    if(choice2 === "rock") {
        return "paper wins";
    }
    else {
        return "scissors wins";
    }
}

else if(choice1 === "scissors") {

    if(choice2 ==="rock"; {
        return "rock wins";
    }
    else {
        return "scissors wins";
    }
}

};

compare(userChoice, computerChoice);

Check this out:

Do you see the problem in it? :smiley:
(There's two problems in that statement)


#3

if(choice2 === "rock") {

is how it should be but now its returning choice1 not defined hmm.

edit: nvm deleted choice1 === computerChoice;
choice2 === userChoice;

and it worked

? Really? I copy/pasted your code and it passed! Did you try refreshing before?

I copy/pasted yours like this, and it worked fine:

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(choice1 === "paper") {

if(choice2 === "rock") {
    return "paper wins";
}
else {
    return "scissors wins";
}

}

else if(choice1 === "scissors") {

if(choice2 ==="rock") {
    return "rock wins";
}
else {
    return "scissors wins";
}

}
};

compare(userChoice, computerChoice);
