Help with orangeCost problem


val orangeCost = function(price)

console.log(price * 5);

I've read other solutions in the forum and I still can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. The error message is "Unexpected identifier". Help, please?


You have to put 'var' at the start, not 'val'. So,

var orangeCost = function(price) {

Then, you can make another variable called f.e. 'val'

var val = price * 5;

Now, it will calculate the price times 5 (amount of oranges you buy per week), but you still need to console.log() the variable 'val'. You should be able to do that one by yourself.


Why do you need the second variable called val? Simply printing price * 5 seems to work.


That's what I did, just kept the console.log(price * 5) and corrected the val to var and it worked.

Thanks for the help--appreciate it from both of you!
