Not sure what I did wrong here?


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 === "paper") {
            return "paper wins";
        }
        else {
            return "rock 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);
