What is wrong with this function?

Define a function called quarter which has a parameter called number. This function returns a value equal to one quarter of the parameter. (i.e. number / 4;) Call the function inside the if statement's condition (and put in a parameter value!) such that "The statement is true" is printed to the console. ?

var quarter = function (number) { console.log(number/4) }

if (quarter() % 3 === 0 ) { console.log("The statement is true"); } else { console.log("The statement is false"); }

First of all, you're declaring the function wrong. It's declared as function name(parameters){//Code}. After that, I don't think you're supposed to call console.log() inside of the function, but just have the function return the proper value, instead. Tell me if this works:

function quarter(number){
  return number/4;
if(quarter(8) % 2 === 0){
  console.log("The statement is true");
  console.log("The statement is false");

yes that worked. Thank you very much.
