Hello Everyone! this is my project!

game.js
```
let target;
const humanGuessInput = document.getElementById('human-guess');
const roundNumberDisplay = document.getElementById('round-number');
const computerGuessDisplay = document.getElementById('computer-guess');
const humanScoreDisplay = document.getElementById('human-score');
const computerScoreDisplay = document.getElementById('computer-score');
const targetNumberDisplay = document.getElementById('target-number');
```

let humanScore = 0;
let computerScore = 0;
let currentRoundNumber = 1;
// Write your code below:

return randomNumber;
}
```

let humanScore = 0;

let currentRoundNumber = 1;
// Write your code below:
const generateTarget = function(){
let randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * 10);
return randomNumber;
}
function compareGuesses(userGuess, computerGuess, secretGuess){
if(Math.abs(secretGuess - userGuess) < Math.abs(secretGuess - computerGuess) || Math.abs(secretGuess - userGuess) === Math.abs(secretGuess - computerGuess)){
return true
} else{
return false
}
}
function updateScore(winner){
if(winner === 'human'){
humanScore = humanScore + 1;
}else if(winner === 'computer'){
computerScore = computerScore + 1;
}
}
function advanceRound() {
currentRoundNumber = currentRoundNumber + 1;
}
```

This went a little easier than expected. The one part that did trip me up a little was ensuring that when testing the guesses my result was always a positive number. I almost went down the rabbit hole of if else statements.

//compare computer vs human guess to the secret number and choose a winner
const compareGuesses = (humanGuess, computerGuess, secretNumber) => {
if (humanGuess > 10){
alert('Choose a number between 1-10 Next time');
}
let computerCompare = Math.abs(secretNumber - computerGuess); //returns the difference as an absolute number
let humanCompare = Math.abs(secretNumber - humanGuess);
if ((humanCompare === computerCompare) || (humanCompare < computerCompare)) {
return true;
} else {
return false;
}
}
//updates score for each round
const updateScore = winner => {
if (winner === 'human') {
humanScore ++;
} else {
computerScore ++;
}
}
//advances rounds
const advanceRound = () => {
currentRoundNumber ++;
}

Hi everyone! New to the forum but hope I’m posting in the correct place. I am have some difficulties in understanding parts of the Number Guesser challenge. More specifically this part of the solution (task 2):

```
const compareGuesses = (humanGuess, computerGuess, target) => {
const humanDiff = Math.abs(target - humanGuess);
const computerDiff = Math.abs(target - computerGuess);
if (humanDiff <= computerDiff) {
return true;
} else {
return false;
}
}
```

I had to look at the solution because I was stuck trying to specify the value of ‘target’ which does not seem to be necessary according to the solution? I completed the rest of the tasks but it bothers me that I don’t understand this part.

Thanks in advance,
Max

The value of `target`

is specified in the other JavaScript file, `game.js`

so you just have to make a function to compare it to the user’s guess and computer’s guess and indicates which one’s closer (by returning `true`

or `false`

).
This function is called in `game.js`

too.

Ok got it! Appreciate the response!

Hi everyone, beginner programmer here!

Below is my solution for this project, if anyone has time to give me some feedback I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

Hi All,

Here is my number guessing game.

Thank you for your time!

If you wish me to review your exercise please post in reply below!

The solution
let humanScore = 0;

let computerScore = 0;

let currentRoundNumber = 1;

// Write your code below:

//function to get random generated number.

function generateTarget(){

```
let targetGuess = Math.floor(Math.random() * 10);
return targetGuess;
```

}

//comparing the guesses to the target gues to see which on was closest.

function compareGuesses(humanGuess, computerGuess, targetGuess){

```
const humanD = Math.abs(targetGuess - humanGuess);
const computerD = Math.abs(targetGuess - computerGuess);
if (humanGuess === targetGuess || computerGuess === targetGuess){
//human player wins
return true;
}
if (humanD < computerD){
//human player wins
return true;
}
if (computerD < humanD){
//computer player wins
return false;
}
```

}

//updating the score using a function

function updateScore(winner){

```
if (winner === 'human'){
humanScore += 1;
}else{
computerScore += 1;
}
```

}

//function for increasing the round number of the game.

function advanceRound(){

```
currentRoundNumber += 1;
```

}
