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

My code isn't working either... Any ideas? :/

So I have now tried typing this out twice and as you will see below, have even commented out sections to try and locate where the error is... But I am not able to fix it.

I keep getting 'else statement' even though the answer can only be '6'!

//var randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * 6 ) + 1; var randomNumber = 6; var guess = prompt("I am thinking of a number between 1 and 6. What is it?"); //if (parseInt(randomNumber) === guess) { if (randomNumber === guess) { document.write("<p>You guessed correctly!</p>"); } else { document.write("<p>Sorry... The number was " + randomNumber + "!</p>"); }

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

Sorry, I finally found the issue...

I had put the randomNumber into the parseInt instead of the users guess.
