The system thinks this code works, but it doesn't

#1

``````Replace this line with your code. Do not remove the backticks.
userChoice = prompt("Do you choose paper scissors or stone?")
var computerChoice = Math.random()
console.log(computerChoice)
computerChoiceTranslation = function()
{
if(computerChoice < 0.34)
{
return "rock";
}
else
{
if(computerChoice > 0.33);
{
if (computerChoice < 0.67);
{
return "paper";
}
}
}

{
if(computerChoice <= 0.67 >= 1)
{
return "scissors";
}
}
}
computerChoice = computerChoiceTranslation
console.log(computerChoice())``````

The Math.random() method will deliver a number with a value
in the range of 0_(included)_ upontill 0.9999_(1 excluded)_.

As you will have to divide the number range form 0_(inclusive)_ to 0,9999_(so 1 excluded)_
into 3 equal partitions
we have to use an if else-if else statement.
The if else-if else skeleton looks like:

``````    if (conditionA) {
//conditionA is true
} else if (conditionB) {
//conditionA is false
//conditionB is true
} else {     // <=== !! Takes NO condition-statements !!
//conditionA is false
//conditionB is false
}``````

following the Instructions the conditions would be:

1. If computerChoice is between 0 and 0.33, make computerChoice equal to "rock".
( 0 <= computerChoice && computerChoice <= 0.33) which we capture at the IF using
( computerChoice <= 0.33)

2. If computerChoice is between 0.34 and 0.66, make computerChoice equal to "paper".
( 0.33 < computerChoice && computerChoice < 0.67) which we capture at the ELSE IF as
( computerChoice < 0.67 )

3. If computerChoice is between 0.67 and 1, make computerChoice equal to "scissors".
( 0.67 <= computerChoice && computerChoice < 1) , you reached the ELSE level
you can asume that computerChoice is greater equal to 0.67,
the ELSE does NOT take a condition, just write your code.

@chipsurfer68121,
If you have corrected the IF ELSE-IF ELSE statement structure
and updated the corresponding condition's
in your `computerChoiceTranslation()` function.....

you could make use of this `computerChoiceTranslation()` function
by calling the function
like

``computerChoice = computerChoiceTranslation();``

I would have included the Math.random() call within the above mentioned function

I know, but it thinks the code is right!
