In the Javascript Boolean Value course I followed his exact step and have his same code but each time i get the right number it report false. What did I do wrong here.

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

Correct Answer

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