Looks like you're off to a good start! But I wasn't quite sure if you were simply experimenting with different ways of doing things or not. In case not, here's a few suggestions for future projects:

  • if you make some inputs case-insensitive, it might make sense to make them all that way
  • the same case insensitivity trick can also prevent needing to compare to multiple answer versions
  • you can save on numeric conversions by just comparing to strings (like: mathAdd == "4")
  • in an "else if" chain, the last term can be a plain "else" since all other cases have been handled
  • inequalities can save needing multiple comparisons (like "else if (right >= 3)")

Thanks, that was incredibly helpful greatly appreciate the feedback. There is definitely a lot of experimenting going on and some lack of knowledge. Is it proper etiquette to declare variables at the top or is that not a thing?

Declaring the variables at the top is definitely a "best practice" and good habit to develop!

And happy holidays!   :christmas_tree:
