It shows an error: unexpexcted token error var


var userChoice = prompt("Do you choose rock, paper or scissors?");
if
var computerChoice = Math.random();
if (computerChoice < 0.34) {
	computerChoice = "rock";
} else if(computerChoice <= 0.67) {
	computerChoice = "paper";
} else {
	computerChoice = "scissors";
} 
console.log("Computer: " + computerChoice);
console.log("User: " +userChoice);
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";
            }
            if (choice2 == "scissors")
            {
                return "scissors wins";
            }
       }
       else if(choice1 === "scissors")
       {
           if(choice2 === "rock")
           {
               return "rock wins";
           }
           if(choice2 === "paper")
           {

  console.log(compare(userChoice,computerChoice));


#2

probably the if here. Is there a reason for this to be at this position?
