Problem with challenge Task 2 Math.methods

Hello I cant understand whats wrong with my solutions?

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".)

Bummer: Did you use the Math.round() method?

var temperature = 37.5; alert (Math.floor(temperature));

script.js
var temperature = 37.5;
alert (Math.floor(temperature));

You need to keep the code for both tasks. It's checking task 1 before task 2.
