Oops, try again. There was a problem with your syntax.
SyntaxError: Unexpected token var

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";
}
/*var compare =function( userChoice , computerChoice)*/
console.log("User Choice: " + userChoice);

console.log("Computer: " + computerChoice);
/*var compare*/
/*var compare =function( userChoice , computerChoice);*/
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";
            }
            else{
            return "scissors wins";    
                }
        }
    else if(choice1 ==="scissors"){
        if(choice2 === "rock"){
          return "rock wins";  
            }
            else{
          return "scissors wins";   
                }
        }    
    
    }
 var compare =function( userChoice , computerChoice)   

var userChoice = choice1;
var computerChoice = choice2;
console.log(userChoice, computerChoice);

#2

brackets for your function ?


#3

 var compare =function( userChoice , computerChoice)  // it's wrong

All you need just to call your function:

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

#4

Thank you very much. It worked.


#5

Could you please give example of "brackets for your function ?" like type of brackets and where to put it? thankx


#6

Denys gave the correct answer,

I was asking about the brackets cos you put function but not correct syntax I wasn't aware that you were trying to call the function.
@denys.matsevych explained it to you.
