Chapter 10

for some reason I can’t declare a variable inside a function. I declared de variable hours = Math.abs(idealSleepHours - actualSleepHours)

but I get the error when calling it in console.log

/home/ccuser/workspace/javascript_101_Unit_3/Unit_3/sleepDebtCalculator.js:35
console.log( ‘You slept hours.’+ hours +’’ You are sleeping well’)

Hi, welcome on the forums! :grinning:

You put out an extra ' sign so it would be:

console.log( 'You slept hours.'+ hours + ' You are sleeping well')
