JavaScript JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects Tracking Multiple Items with Arrays Build a Quiz Challenge, Part 1 Solution

No matter what I enter I seem to get the output that I got one question right?

function print(message) {

var quiz = [
  ['What is my name?', 'Cyrus'],
  ['How old am I?', 23],
  ['Where do I live?', 'Las Vegas']

var questions;
var answers;
var response;
var correctAnswers = 0;
var html;

for ( var i = 0; i < quiz.length; i++ ) {
  questions = quiz[i][0];
  answers = quiz[i][1];
  response = prompt(questions);

    if (answers === response) {
      correctAnswers =+ 1;

html = print('You got ' + correctAnswers + ' question(s) correct!')

I have already taken into consideration parseInt() and toLowerCase btw

You have:

correctAnswers =+ 1;

which is equivalent to correctAnswers = 1.

It should be:

correctAnswers += 1;

omg, good catch, thank you.
