reate a conditional statement that tests if the isAdmin variable is true. If it's true, set the value of the message var

script.js
const isAdmin = true;
const isStudent = false;
let message;
let message;
if ( isAdmin ) {
 message = "Welcome admin".

You're pretty close, but I see 3 issues:

  • you can only declare a variable once (there should only be one "let message;")
  • the assignment statement should end with a semicolon instead of a period
  • the "if" block is missing the closing brace (})
