Hi Morgan Norelius

You are on the right track and have the right idea, it's just the syntax is a bit flipped. You want to check and see if initialScore does not equal 10 and assign it to the variable isWinner, and you're almost there.

Right now the code is trying to assign "not 10" to the variable initialScore instead of checking the value. This is because the = sign by itself is an assignment operator. To check to is if something is not the value, you would use != for "not equals".

Once you fix up that part of the code initialScore = !10 to initialScore != 10 it will pass.

Nice work so far!! :)


Thank you! I understand now. Syntax is so particular...
