JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Making Decisions with Conditional Statements Build a Random Number Guessing Game

My Code is not working,

I'm not the best when it comes to JavaScript in fact I down right despise it. but I need help with this code something is wrong with it and I can't figure out what, I am trying to create a random number generator. If anyone can help me that would be great. Here is the code:

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

It looks like you're missing a closing parentheses after '<p>You guessed the number jackass!</p>' and you're missing a closing single quote after ('<p>Sorry. The number was'+ randomNumber+'</p>) . That should fix it up!

you are missing ' after '</p on line 6. it should be '</p>' hope this helps

  1. change "jackass" to "luck you!"
  2. '</p on line 6. it should be '</p>'
