"unexpected identifier"?

var cashRegister = {
    total: 0,
//insert the add method here    
    add: function(itemCost) {
        this.total += itemCost;
    }
    
    scan: function (item) {
        switch (item) { 
        case "eggs": 
            this.add(0.98); 
            break;
        
        case "milk": 
            this.add(1.23); 
            break;
        
        //Add other 2 items here
        case "magazine":
            this.add(4.99);
            break;
        
        case "chocolate":
            this.add(0.45);
            break;
        }
        return true;
    }
};

//Scan 2 eggs and 3 magazines
cashRegister.scan("eggs");
cashRegister.scan("eggs");
cashRegister.scan("magazine");
cashRegister.scan("magazine");
cashRegister.scan("magazine");
//Show the total bill
console.log('Your bill is '+cashRegister.total);

If you mean to say that you are getting that error message and that you want help approaching that problem.. Then I suggest running the code in another javascript interpreter, as most interpreters include line numbers with their error messages.

A comma has to be added after the add method.

"Comma don't forget that a comma (,) will be needed after closing the new add method"
