JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Creating Reusable Code with Functions Random Number Challenge

Why does it show alert box 2 times?

Here is my code.

function quiz() {
a = parseInt(prompt("Type the lowest possible value"));
b = parseInt(prompt("Type the highest possible value"));
result = Math.floor(Math.random() * (b - a + 1)) + a; 
  return result;

}
quiz();

document.write("Your number is " + quiz());

edited code for formatting.

AH yeah I see what you are saying.

Your are calling the function quiz() twice

function quiz() {
a = parseInt(prompt("Type the lowest possible value"));
b = parseInt(prompt("Type the highest possible value"));
result = Math.floor(Math.random() * (b - a + 1)) + a; 
  return result;

}
quiz();  //you don't need to call quiz() here...you are just calling it and not doing anything with it

document.write("Your number is " + quiz()); //since you are calling quiz() here for use in your document.write statement

thank u)

you're welcome :)

You have 2 prompt statements.

a = parseInt(prompt("Type the lowest possible value"));
b = parseInt(prompt("Type the highest possible value"));

no, after these 2 times, it asks 2 times again. just try it and you will see
