lesson7 Syntax error


#1


Can someone help me understand this problem? It keeps saying there was a problem with your syntax I have tried almost everything.!


.
var compare= function (choice1,choice2)
}
else if (choice1 === "paper") {
    if (choice2 === "rock") 
        return "paper wins";
} else {
    return "scissors wins"; 
}

@thatgirlkaykay,

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 )

#3

You opened your code block with a closing curly brace on line 2. Your code looks like:
var compare= function (choice1,choice2)
}

it should be this :

var compare= function (choice1,choice2)
{


#4

It still says its incorrect here's my new code
{
else if (choice1 === "paper") {
if (choice2 === "rock")
return "paper wins";
} else {
return "scissors wins";
}
