the second if else statement is not working properly,after entering "no" in the prompt the else statement is not printing.
sorry I'm new to javascript :confounded:

confirm("are you ready to play");
var age=prompt("what is your age");
if(age<13)
{
    console.log("they're allowed to play but we take no responsibility")
    }
    else {
        console.log("play on!")
        }
        console.log("You are at a Justin Bieber concert, and you hear this lyric 'Lace my shoes off, start racing.'")
        console.log("Suddenly, Bieber stops and says, 'Who wants to race me?'")
        var userAnswer = prompt("Do you want to race Bieber on stage?");
        if(userAnswer="yes")
        {
            console.log("You and Bieber start racing. It's neck and neck! You win by a shoelace!")
        }
        else {
            console.log("Oh no! Bieber shakes his head and sings 'I set a pace, so I can race without pacing.'")
        }

HI this line

if(userAnswer="yes")

you should change the = with ===
Because
to store a value inside a variable you use =

to compares two value you use == or ===
