# I keep on getting an endless loop, and whenever I launch my workspace it becomes unresponsive and treehouse webpage

var upper = 10; var attempts = 0; var message; var answer = parseInt(message); var correct = false;

function randomNumber(upper){ var rand = Math.floor(Math.random() * upper) + 1; return rand; }

do{ message = prompt("Guess my correct random number between 1 and 10"); attempts += 1; if(answer === randomNumber(upper)){ correct = true; } }while( ! correct )

document.write("<p>It took you " + attempts + " times before you got " + randomNumber(upper) + " correctly" + ".</p>");

When you write message to document, you are again calling the randomNumber(), so if you do match during the game, the random value in your message won't actually be the value that was matched.

I was able to get it to work by eliminating the global answer variable and just combining it in the Do/while loop. Also referenced the 'rand' variable on the .write() method params

```var upper = 10;
var attempts = 0;
// var answer = parseInt(message); *** Moved into Do/while Loop *** //
var correct = false;
var rand;

function randomNumber(upper) {
return rand = Math.floor(Math.random() * upper) + 1;
}

do {
answer = parseInt(prompt("Guess my correct random number between 1 and 10"));
attempts += 1;
