@juankd334,
You are forgetting 1 closing-bracket-}
with which you would close the compare =function=.


#3

Tried that and it still doesn't work. Is there anything else?

@juankd334,
Display the full code you are using now....!

Please read
http://www.codecademy.com/forum_questions/559dcb4be39efe550f00006b
and concentrate on:

  • the creation of the compare function
  • the truth-table
  • the build of the IF ELSE-IF statement structure as part of the compare FUNCTION-BODY
  • the execution of the compare function (keeping in mind that the return statement is used )
