bool assignment

Change the value of powerPoints to 5. Then create an if else statement such that when 'powerPoints' is less than 3 'hasBonus' is false, but in all other cases 'hasBonus' is true.

bool hasBonus;

int powerPoints;
powerPoints = 5;

if (powerPoints < 3) {
    powerPoints = hasBonus;
}

else{
    powerPoints = 5;

What am I missing here?

bool hasBonus;
