Syntax error and other help


#1


What if choice1 is scissors?


There is some sort of syntax error that I cannot spot for the life of me. When there is no syntax error, it tells me to call the userChoice and computerChoice functions and i do not know what that means. Please help


var userChoice = prompt("Do you choose rock, paper or scissors?");
var computerChoice = Math.random();
if (computerChoice < 0.34) {
	computerChoice = "rock";
} else if(computerChoice <= 0.67) {
	computerChoice = "paper";
} else {
	computerChoice = "scissors";
} console.log("Computer: " + computerChoice);

var compare = function(choice1, choice2){
    if (choice1 === choice2) {
        return "The result is a tie!"
    }
    else if (choice1 === "rock"){
        if (choice2 === "scissors"){
            return "rock wins"
        }
        else
        {
            return "paper wins"
        }
    }
    else if (choice1 === "paper"){
        if (choice2 === "rock"){
            return "paper wins"
        }
        else
        {
            return "scissors wins"
        }
    }
    else 
    {
    return "scissors wins"
        }
    }
};

This else statement appears twice at the end of your compare function. Remove the extra statement and then call the compare function with userChoice and computerChoice as the arguments.

Ex: compare(userChoice, computerChoice)
