Rock, Paper, Scissors. userChoice is not defined

"Rock, Paper, Scissors" Learn Javascript

Hey guys, I'm getting Reference error: userChoice is not defined. Can you please point out my mistake because this is my third time I have started this exercise from the scratch and just can't figure it out.

Thank you!

function getUserChoice() {
  var userInput = prompt("Rock, Paper or Scissors?");
  userInput = userInput.toLowerCase();
  if (userChoice === "rock" || userChoice === "paper" || userChoice === "scissors") {
    return userInput;
  } else {
    console.log("Error!");
  }
}

function getComputerChoice() {
  Math.floor(Math.random() * 3);
  switch(getComputerChoice) {
    case 0:
      return "rock";
    case 1:
      return "paper";
    case 3:
      return "scissors";
                          }
}

function determineWinner(userChoice, computerChoice) {
  if (userChoice === computerChoice) {
    return "Game is a Tie!";
  } if (userChoice === "rock") {
      if (computerChoice === "paper") {
        return "The computer won!";
      } else {
        return "You won!";
      }
  } if (userChoice === "paper") {
      if (computerChoice === "scissors") {
        return "The computer won!";
      } else {
        return "You won!";
      }
  } if (userChoice === "scissors") {
      if (computerChoice === "rock") {
        return "The computer won!";
      } else {
        return "You won!";
}
  }
} 

function playGame() {
  var userChoice = getUserChoice();
  var computerChoice = getComputerChoice();
  console.log("You threw: " + userChoice);
  console.log("The computer threw: " + computerChoice);
  console.log(determineWinner(userChoice, computerChoice));
  }


playGame();

Sorted! I set userInput variable instead useChoice in the first function. :sweat:
