Lesson 8


#1

I am trying to call my function but I keep getting an unexpected token error.\

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 (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";
    }
    
    }
};

compare(userChoice,computerChoice);

check your parentheses on this line:

else if (choice1 === "scissors" {

I am having on issue as well. Can anyone help me out?

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(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" }
}
};
compare(userChoice,computerChoice);

right here:

what is this(*/) doing here?


#5

i took */ out and I still get SyntaxError: Unexpected token else


#6

you have one to many
and also:

an equal(:)?


#7

thank you! you just saved me


#8

your welcome :slight_smile:


#9

Depending on the lesson, that segment of code is commented for the first one or two stages of the compare function.
