var temperature = 37.5; alert() = Math.round(temperature); Why do I get syntax and Parse Error on this piece of code?

I keep getting a Syntax and Parse Error when I run this code

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

1 Answer

Put the information for the alentire inside of the parentheses, no equal sign. Try this:

alert (Math.round(temperature));

Alert is a function that takes an argument. The equals sign is used to a sign a value tof something; like a variable.

alert* not alentire lol. Auto correct.

Thank you very much.
