"Old enough to play"

confirm(“I’m Ready!”);

This seems to be your problem.

There isn’t anything in JavaScript called ‘is less than’.

Also you forgot a curly brace on the else-statement.

@cadecodes is right, there’s no such thing as 'is less than' in javascript condition and you totally forgot the open curly brace on your else statement.

@lesserlight, instead of using the words 'is less than' , use the javascript operator '<'

Here’s the whole blocks of codes

confirm("I'm Ready!");
var age = prompt("What's your age?");
   if(age < 13){
     console.log("Play at your own risk");
    console.log("Can't stop now!");

Hope this helps.


do if(“age is less than 13”) use quotation marks there. this how the code should look like// Check if the user is ready to play!
confirm(“I understand confirm!”);

var age = prompt(“What’s your age”);

if(“age is less than 13”)
console.log(“We will not take responsibility for your actions”);

console.log(“Have fun!”);

Thank all of you. I got it to work!!!


// Check if the user is ready to play!
confirm(" i am ready to play")
var Age =prompt(“what’s your age?”);
if (“Age is less 13”) {
console.log(“seek parental permission”);
}else {
console.log(“lets play!”)
its saying did you define a variable called age?


It wants age

It helped me very much. Thank you @gracie017


Hi ! your problem is simple to solve.

The issue is here:

        if ("Age is less 13")

The computer dosen’t understand the comparison with words, it already have a list pre-stablished for that. You need to use the symbols ( ===, < , >).


      if (Age<13)

No Quotes! since you re not typing a string.

confirm(‘Lets Play!’);
var age = prompt(‘Whats Your Age?’);
if (age<10) {
console.log(‘Are you sure your old enough?’);
} else {
console.log(‘Lets Go!’);

This is what I have written but it comes up with the error …
‘Oops, try again. It looks like you didn’t check for the user’s age.’

Even thought it does ask me and i put my age in? I’m confused please help.

Hi ! i think you need to check your quotes (" “) since you’re using (’) , try replacing your (’ ') for (” ") .

Hope it helps!
