Improving the Random Number Guessing Game (JavaScript Basics)

Hi Guys

My alert dialogue boxes are not appearing for some reason. Double checked the code but not sure where the error is.

var correctGuess = false; var randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * 6 ) + 1; var guess = prompt("I am thinking of a number between 1 and 6. What is it?"); if (parseInt(guess) === randomNumber ) { correctGuess = true; }else if(parseInt(guess) <random){ var guessMore = prompt("Try again. The number I am thinking of is more than" + guess); if(parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber){ correctGuess = true; } } else if (parseInt(guess) > randomNumber){ var guessLess = prompt ("Try again the number I was thinking of is less than" + guess); if partseInt(guessLess) === randomNumber) { correctGuess = true; } } if (correctGuess) { document.write("<p>You guessed the number!</p>"); } else { document.write("<p>Sorry. The number was " + randomNumber + ".</p>"); }

It workes like a charm....as long as you correct all the typos in there. Lot of "{" missing, grammer mistakes ( partseInt not parseInt and so on ). Advice: write some code - test it, write - test it. I have used only the console to check your code. @TomasNovy have told you how to enter code snippets so I will not spam.

```var correctGuess = false;
var randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * 6 ) + 1;
var guess = prompt("I am thinking of a number between 1 and 6. What is it?");
if (parseInt(guess) === randomNumber ) {
correctGuess = true;
}else if(parseInt(guess) < randomNumber){
var guessMore = prompt("Try again. The number I am thinking of is more than" + guess);
if(parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber){
correctGuess = true;
}else if (parseInt(guess) > randomNumber){
var guessLess = prompt ("Try again the number I was thinking of is less than" + guess);
}
}

if(parseInt(guessLess) === randomNumber){
correctGuess = true;
}
if (correctGuess) {
document.write("<p>You guessed the number!</p>");
} else {
document.write("<p>Sorry. The number was " + randomNumber + ".</p>"); }
```

Hi Kevin,

```Wrap your code with 3 backticks (```) on the line before and after.
