When I run this code the console tells me "Syntax error: Unexpected Token {. I coded it and then when i was stuck looked at the hint and formatted it to be a mirror image, confused why I continue to get an erro message


/*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 (chioice2==="scissors") {
            return "rock wins";
        } 
        else {
            return "paper wins":
        }
    }
}

Hey this is what the correct code look like

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";
        }

}

}

You have 8 } but only 7 { so try balancing out your brackets and then your error should be solved! :smiley:
