I dont see what I am doing wrong, code wont run

pls let me know if its my browser, because I went over this line by line and its the same thing.

var upper = 10000;
var randomNumber = getRandomNumber(upper);
var guess;
var attempts = 0;

function getRandomNumber(upper) {
  return Math.floor( Math.random() * upper ) + 1;

while (guess !== randomNumber) {
  guess = getRandomNumber(upper);
  attempts += 1;
document.write("<p>The random number was: " + randomNuber + "</p>");
document.write("<p>It took the computer" + attempts + " attempts to get it right.</p>");

You have a typo in your first document.write command. You type randomNuber instead of randomNumber.

If you fix that typo then your code will run.

I advise you to debug your code by using the Chrome console like Dave is doing on videos. Then, It will take a second to find bugs like yours.

Thank you so much, I saw it after I took a 10-minute break. I guess sometimes you just need to take a break to see mistakes, but I greatly appreciate it
