My solution to the challenge

at first, I was calculating the results of two inputs by using 4 different variables (because of 4 different calculations). then I realized from one of the students' codes that I could do it within the same template literals.

By the way, having these video materials from 2-3 years ago and also hearing the let, const, and var topics such as var is not preferred that much anymore makes me confused a little

// 1. Attach this file -- math.js -- to the index.html file using a <script> tag

// 2. Add an alert to announce the program with a message like "Let's do some math!"

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

// 3. Create a variable and use the prompt() method to collect a number from a visitor

const inputRawFirst = prompt("Provide a value");
const inputRawSecond = prompt("Provide another value");

// 4. Convert that value from a string to a floating point number

const inputFirst = parseFloat(inputRawFirst);
const inputSecond = parseFloat(inputRawSecond);

const messageFirst = `<h1>Math  with the numbers ${inputFirst} and ${inputRawSecond}<br></h1>
${inputFirst} + ${inputSecond} = ${inputFirst + inputSecond} <br>
${inputFirst} - ${inputSecond} = ${inputFirst - inputSecond} <br>
${inputFirst} * ${inputSecond} = ${inputFirst * inputSecond} <br>
${inputFirst} / ${inputSecond} = ${inputFirst / inputSecond} <br>
