Code not working.

After I type a number into the prompt nothing happens. I can't figure out why.

var randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * 6 ) + 1;
var guess = prompt(' I am thinking of a number between 1 and 6. What is it?');
if (parseInt(guess) === randumNumber ) {
  document.write('<p>You guessed the number!</p>');
} else {
  document.write('<p>Sorry. The number was ' + randomNumber + '</p>');
}

You misspelled randomNumber there.
