My code won't run

I don't really know where i got it wrong

var upper = 1000;
var randomNumber = getRandomNumber(upper);
var guess;
var attempts = 0;

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

while( guess !== randomNumber ) {
  guess = getRandomNumber(upper);
  attempts+= 1;
}
document.write("<p>The random number was: " + randomNumber +"</p>);
document.write("<p>It took the computer " + attempts + " attempts to get it right.</p>"); 

1 Answer

this line is missing a closing " around the <p> tag at the end.

document.write("<p>The random number was: " + randomNumber + "</p>");
