What if Choice 1 is scissors? Having some trouble


#1

Can anyone help me find the problem with this code:

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 if (choice1 === "scissors" {
if (choice2 === "rock") {
return "rock wins";
}
else
{
return "scissors wins"
}
}
}
compare(userChoice, computerChoice)

It comes up as SyntaxError: Unexpected token else. Thanks in advance!

Sorry! Here's the formatted version:

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 if (choice1 === "scissors" {
    if (choice2 === "rock") {
        return "rock wins";
    }
    else
    {
        return "scissors wins"
    }
}
}
compare(userChoice, computerChoice)

Your error is here . You need closing parenthesis on the else if line

and delete the brace before that line
