iOS Objective-C Basics Introduction to Operators and Conditionals Review IF / ELSE

Can't get this boolean to work.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong?

bool hasBonus;

int powerPoints = 5;

if (powerPoints =< 3);
  hasBonus = false;

else hasBonus = true;

1 Answer

A couple of problems. First, you have to have <= in that order, not the reverse. Second, with if... else... you need curly braces on each part:

if (powerPoints <= 3) {
  hasBonus = false;
} else {
  hasBonus = true;
