Possible Bug

I think there may be a bug here.

Question: Create a variable named "circumference" and assign the correct value to it by using the "diameter" variable and Math.PI. See the comment in the script for more information.

Provided code: var diameter = 5.75, a = 17, b = 42, c = 1337, ageIfILiveToYear2100 = (new Date(2100, 0, 1) - new Date(1995, 5, 16, 7, 20)) / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24 * 365.242);

My answer: var circumference = math.PI(diameter);

Shows as incorrect, and this explanation is given: Bummer! No variable named "circumference" has been defined. Make sure to declare the variable like: var circumference =...

Note: I noticed incorrect syntax can cause strange hint messages, but I am almost certain I have this correct.

1 Answer

Correct answer:

var circumference = Math.PI * diameter;

Thanks Eirik Vale Aase!!
