Open an alert dialog a second time and display the temperature variable rounded downward to the nearest integer. You'll need to check the Mozilla Developer Network to find the proper Math method for this (hint: down is toward the "floor".)

script.js
var temperature = 37.5;
alert(Math.round(temperature));
alert(math.Floor(temperature));

Hi mohammed mayat,

You have a simple oversight in your second alert declaration which is you have the casing for Math and floor the wrong way. Standard objects in JavaScript always begin with an uppercase letter while the proceeding properties and methods begin with a lowercase letter.

alert(Math.floor(temperature));

Happy coding!
