What if choice1 is rock? syntax error


#1


i cant seem to fing the syntax error here and its driving me insane. its telling me there's an "unexpected token else" somewhere and for the life of me i cant find it


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";
    }

}

the part thats uncommented when it was supposed to be isnt the problem, i tried that. it still shows "unexpected token else"


#3

var compare = function(choice1, choice2) {
    if (choice1 === choice2) {
        return "the result is a tie";
    }
}

The last brace is closing the function body. Move it to the very bottom of your code so the else if statement is inside the function.
