You Deserve It!


This code returns "Oops, try again. False" when I submit it in codeacademy. While using another console it returned "Your bill is NaN".

function StaffMember(name,discountPercent){ = 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("Ben",20);

var cashRegister = {
    lastTransactionAmount: 0,
    add: function(itemCost){ += (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.lastTransactionAmount;
        this.lastTransactionAmount = 0;
    // Create a new method applyStaffDiscount here
    applyStaffDiscount: function(employee){ -=*(employee.discountpercent/100)

// Apply your staff discount by passing the 'me' object 
// to applyStaffDiscount

// Show the total bill
console.log('Your bill is ';


So your error is clear.

This is returning a value that is not a number(NaN).

First you have it as discountPercent

Later you have it as discountpercent


Wow. All of it didn't work because I didn't capitalize one letter. XD

Thank you
