Why this is not ending the loop when the correct answer is given?

var randomNumber = getRandomNumber(10); var guess; var guessCount = 0; var correctGuess = false;

function getRandomNumber( upper ) { var num = Math.floor(Math.random() * upper) + 1; return num; }

do { guess = prompt('Write the number between 1-10.'); guessCount +=1; if (parseInt(guess) === randomNumber) { correctGuess = true; } } while ( ! correctGuess )

document.write('h1>Yeah thats right!</h1>'); document.write('It took you ' + guessCount + ' tries to guess the number ' + randomNumber); This code appears to be correct. The loop will continue until you guess the random number.

If you're inclined to experiment, one possible improvement would be to keep a count of the tries and only allow a certain number of attempts. Then you would have two endings, one for "win" and one for "lose". Hi,

Here is my code now. It keeps tracking how many wrong answer I have, but it won't end when 0 guesses are left. I'm not sure how to do it correctly with do while loop. Can I make different end to the code?

var randomNumber = getRandomNumber(10); var guess; var guessCount = 0; var correctGuess = false; var guessLeft = 10;

function getRandomNumber( upper ) { var num = Math.floor(Math.random() * upper) + 1; return num; }

do { guess = prompt('Write the number between 1-10. ' + 'You have ' + guessLeft + ' guesses left.'); guessCount +=1; guessLeft -=1; if (parseInt(guess) === randomNumber) { correctGuess = true; document.write('<h1>Yeah thats right!</h1>'); document.write('It took you ' + guessCount + ' tries to guess the number ' + randomNumber); } else if (guessLeft < 1) { document.write('<p>You lose try again!</p>'); } } while ( ! correctGuess ) For formatting posted code, see the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area.
