JavaScript JavaScript Basics Making Decisions in Your Code with Conditional Statements Write an 'if' Statement

Create a conditional statement that tests if the isAdmin variable is true.

Good evening everyone. Hope all are warm and dry. I could use a little guidance on this coding challenge as I am stuck.

const isAdmin = true;
const isStudent = false;

if (message === isAdmin) {
  console.log("Welcome admin");

Hi Kelly!

The key part of the task is this:

tests if the isAdmin variable is true

Which when coded would be:

if (isAdmin === true) { 
  // then do stuff

think of "===" as "is exactly equal to"

This passes:

const isAdmin = true;
const isStudent = false;
let message;
if (isAdmin === true) {
  message = "Welcome admin";

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!

That worked - thank you very much. Have a great rest of your evening.

U2!!! ;)
