JavaScript

can i add parseInt to the var in the prompt instead of var = totalbadges?

for instance :

const parseInt(HTMLBadges) = prompt('How many HTML badges do you have?');

const parseInt(CSSBadges) = prompt('How many CSS badges do you have?');

const totalbadges = HTMLBadges + CSSBadges; console.log(totalbadges);

console.log(typeof HTMLBadges typeof CSSBadges) [

Instead of :

const HTMLBadges = prompt('How many HTML badges do you have?');

const CSSBadges = prompt('How many CSS badges do you have?');

const totalbadges = parseInt(HTMLBadges) + parseInt(CSSBadges); console.log(totalbadges); console.log(typeof HTMLBadges typeof CSSBadges)

You can't assign into a function. But you can do both operations at once this way:

const HTMLBadges = parseInt(prompt('How many HTML badges do you have?'));
