I am not seeing my syntax error

I believe I followed all the steps but I can't identify where the error is

var a = 10;
var b = 20;
var c = 30;
if a > b {
  alert('a is greater than b');
  alert('a is not greater than b');
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

You are missing parentheses in the first line of Your "if" statement. You have:

if a > b 

it should be:

if (a > b)

Please, mark you question as answered.
