JavaScript Introducing the Practice

just sharing my code

Finished the math practice, and this is my code. (I wish I knew how to keep the color code from the workspace, but still don't know how to.) If you're reading this and have some helpful feedback, please let me know. Thanks!

alert("Let's do some math!");

var input1 = prompt("Please type a number.");
var firstNumber = parseFloat(input1);

var input2 = prompt("Please type another number.");
var secondNumber = parseFloat(input2);

var add = firstNumber + secondNumber;
var multiply = firstNumber * secondNumber;
var divide = firstNumber / secondNumber;
var subtract = firstNumber - secondNumber;
var message = ("<h1>" + "Math with the numbers " + firstNumber + " and " + secondNumber + "</h1>"
               + firstNumber + " + " + secondNumber + " = " + add + "<br>"
               + firstNumber + " * " + secondNumber + " = " + multiply + "<br>"
               + firstNumber + " / " + secondNumber + " = " + divide + "<br>"
               + firstNumber + " - " + secondNumber + " = " + subtract + "<br>"                  
              );

document.write(message);

After the 3 backticks (accents) that start the Markdown code area, put the language name to get syntax coloring.

So in this case :point_right:```javascript

And good job on the code, very nice formatting! :+1:
