What is wrong with this code? There is a syntax problem


#1

function StaffMember(name,discountPercent){
this.name = name;
this.discountPercent = discountPercent;
}

var sally = new StaffMember("Sally",5);
var bob = new StaffMember("Bob",10);

// Create yourself again as 'me' with a staff discount of 20%
var me=new StaffMember("peter",20);

var cashRegister = {
total:0,
lastTransactionAmount: 0,
add: function(itemCost){
this.total += (itemCost || 0);
this.lastTransactionAmount = itemCost;
},
scan: function(item,quantity){
switch (item){
case "eggs": this.add(0.98 * quantity); break;
case "milk": this.add(1.23 * quantity); break;
case "magazine": this.add(4.99 * quantity); break;
case "chocolate": this.add(0.45 * quantity); break;
}
return true;
},
voidLastTransaction : function(){
this.total -= this.lastTransactionAmount;
this.lastTransactionAmount = 0;
},
// Create a new method applyStaffDiscount here
applyStaffDiscount:function(employee){
this.total -=this.total * (100-employee.discountPercent)/ 100);
}

};

cashRegister.scan('eggs',1);
cashRegister.scan('milk',1);
cashRegister.scan('magazine',3);
// Apply your staff discount by passing the 'me' object
// to applyStaffDiscount
cashRegister.applyStaffDiscount(me);

// Show the total bill
console.log('Your bill is '+cashRegister.total.toFixed(2));

missing (
see this line
this.total -=this.total * (100-employee.discountPercent)/ 100);

Many people make the same mistake and I have told many people the solution. In the code :

applyStaffDiscount:function(employee){
this.total -=this.total * (100-employee.discountPercent)/ 100);
}

they want you to change employee, also the first 100 is not needed, here is my code:

applyStaffDiscount: function(Shrek){
this.total -= this.total * (Shrek.discountPercent / 100);
}
