Getting the correct response from different capitalization in the prompt.

I tried using the .toUpperCase() but in the 'if' statement and 'answerOne = "FALSE" being capitalized but I couldn't it to log correctly. How do i get the correct answer regardless of user capitalization? This is where I am stuck...

questionOne = prompt("True or False: The US government owns the US currency."); answerOne = "False"; if (questionOne === answerOne); { console.log("Correct!"); } else { console.log("The correct answer is False."); }

Aside: in your example line I needed to delete the third semi-colon to make it run in the console.

Perhaps this is what you are looking for: if (questionOne.toUpperCase() === answerOne.toUpperCase())
