Need help with IF ELSE statements ! :)

How do I set "hasBonus" to false into the "if (powerPoints < 3)" and set "hasBonus" to true in the "else" statement? I'd really appreciate the help. I've been stuck with this for too long. Thanks.

bool hasBonus;
int powerPoints;
powerPoints = 0;
if (powerPoints < 3)
{
  hasBonus = 5 == 6;
}
else
{
  hasBonus = 5 == 5;
}

The great news here is that it seems you truly understand "truthy" and "falsey"! So kudos! :thumbsup: But what it wants is for you to explicitly set them to the keywords true and false. Take a look and see how incredibly close you are! Note: this is just your code slightly modified.

bool hasBonus;
int powerPoints;
powerPoints = 0;
if (powerPoints < 3)
{
  hasBonus = false;
}
else
{
  hasBonus = true;
}

Hope this helps!
