Fizz Buzz Question


At 1st, I coded Fizz Buzz like your provided solution. Then I realized, if I used else if, I would drop out when the number is divisible by 15, 3, and 5. For instance 15, 15 is divisible by 3, 5, and 15. Therefore Fizz, Buzz, and FizzBuzz should be printed.

Then I changed the code to all if statements, so that the number would be tested against each condition every time. Of course, this solution didn't pass.

I re-listened to the video and it doesn't say drop out once a test is met.

Has anyone else found the instructions confusing?

There's nothing wrong with your sintax. The first thing you have to check is for FizzBuzz, that is, if the number is divisible by 3 and 5, then you check only 3 and 5. Otherwise the flow stops at the first and second check, never checking for FizzBuzz numbers. If my answer made any sense, I hope I could help. There is a video with the answer to this challenge though.

This is what I did and it works every time: I hope this helps.

var randomNumber = 16

let fizz = randomNumber % 3 == 0

let buzz = randomNumber % 5 == 0

let fizzBuzz = fizz && buzz

if fizzBuzz {


} else if fizz {


} else if buzz{


} else {
