Working code = good job. :+1: And I can see that this code would work if it was formatted.

Even if they're not required at the end of a line, it's a "best practice" to put semicolons at the end of each statement. Since they weren't there, when the lack of formatting folded the lines above, the code became non-functional.

And to prevent line folding and other undesirable changes, always use the instructions for code formatting in the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area. :arrow_heading_down:   Or watch this video on code formatting.

For practice, you might edit this question so the code is formatted for the benefit of any students reading it later.
